Description

Picturing Pennsylvnia Barns is part of an exciting new initiative funded by Art Bridges (Bentonville, Arkansas) + Terra Foundation (Chicago, Illinois) and anchored by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The new initiative supports multi-year institutional partnerships that engange local communities with outstanding works of American art. Sharing collections and resources, these collaborative partners create a series of exhibitions that are cotent rich, include in-depth educational and interpretive material, and are designed to expand audiences through innovative programming.

RPM’s initial project is a focus exhibition Picturing Pennsylvania Barns. The exhibition will feature as its centerpiece, Hill Road, 1920, by Pennsylvania impressionist George Sotter (American, 1879 – 1953) displayed side-by-side with two works by modernist Charles Sheeler (American, 1883 – 1965), lent by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Sheeler’s Buck County Barn, 1918, a gelatin silver print that captures the same barn depicted in Sotter’s painting and from nearly the same angle. Sheeler’s Pennsylvania Landscape, a luminous work painted seven years later rounds out the grouping. The exhibition willl also feature works by R.A.D. Miller, Walter Reinsel, Ranulph Bye, Elizabeth Hurwitz, among others.
