To support the recent opening of our latest exhibit, The Poetry of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society, the Wichita Art Museum will be hosting an all-day event which will allow free admission to all elementary, high school and college students in order for them to have a chance to experience the exhibit.
The Poetry of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society is an exhibit that consists of an impeccable selection of 41 paintings from the 19th century movement known as the Hudson River School.
We believe this exhibit is important for students of all ages to come visit because it showcases a central movement in American cultural history. The art represents the first formulation of American artistic expression and is focused on serene, untouched American landscapes as they appeared in the 19th century. Students visiting the exhibit will have a chance to see how different parts of the country looked prior to being civilized, and, hopefully, learn more about the Hudson River School and what it stood for.
