August Heckscher Collection

Drawn from the Museum’s Collection, this exhibition features a broad range of artwork inspired by the moon and moonlight. From the nineteenth century to the present, artists have gravitated to the moon for reasons scientific, mythic, and symbolic. The celestial artworks on view explore our enduring fascination with the moon in all its phases.

 

This exhibition is organized by Karli Wurzelbacher, Curator, The Heckscher Museum of Art; and Shelley DeMaria, Art Historian and Curator.
