32 Degrees: The Art of Winter features winter-inspired works of art in an array of media, from the late nineteenth century to present day. This multifaceted, interactive exhibition explores the complexities of snow and ice. Artworks ranging from Claude Monet’s famous Grainstacks to contemporary photography, sound pieces, digital art, games, and site-specific installations are located both inside the Museum and on the grounds. Curator Carolyn Bauer actively sought out international and contemporary artists while digging deep into the rich collections of Shelburne Museum to explore themes of aesthetics, ephemerality, nostalgia, and climate change.
