“Most of these significant works have never been exhibited in upstate New York, making Nature and the American Vision even more special for the people in our region,” D’Ambrosio added.
To enhance its collaborative efforts, the Fenimore Art Museum has made special arrangements with The Parthenon (which serves as the city of Nashville’s museum of art) to display the well-known Frederic Church painting “The Wreck” — making a direct connection with Olana State Historic Site, the home of Frederic Church, and the Glimmerglass Festival’s summer production of Richard Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman.”
“The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision” is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. It is also sponsored in part by Fenimore Asset Management Fund of The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. The exhibition has been organized by the New York Historical Society.
