Like the seasons themselves, perennial favorite guest co-curators Franklin Hill Perrell and Debbie Wells return to the museum with a fresh look at visual art inspired by the seasons highlighted by an outstanding roster of artists.
This fall, they proudly present The Seasons, complete with a full harvest of paintings, sculpture, photography, fashion and design, including works by Grandma Moses, Jasper Johns, Norman Rockwell, Marc Chagall and Jane Freilicher, plus a special showcase of glittering minaudières and fashion accessories by handbag designer Judith Leiber.
