Join docents for a guided tour of Intersections in American Art, the major reinstallation and reinterpretation of the Museum’s Collection in a much-enlarged gallery space. A national team of scholars and experts in the field worked with the Museum to develop this new interpretation and exhibition installation. Intersections in American Art and the first catalogue of the Museum’s Collection consider multiple and sometimes intersecting narratives in American art. Both the exhibition and the catalogue focus on key aspects and strengths of the Museum’s holdings and provide a narrative framework within which visitors can interact with and experience works of art. The project is organized to convey the multifaceted historical and contemporary stories of art and culture in WNC and Southern Appalachia, set within the broader context of American aesthetic development. The project tells the story of our area, and explores our sense of place and its relationship to and national impact on the art world.
