Museum Art Excursion to Boston
William Trost Richards: Hieroglyphs of Landscape at the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College
November 10, 2019 8:30 am - 6:00 pm
This November, we invite you to join Newport Art Museum Executive Director, Norah Diedrich and Director of Community Engagement, Cristin Searles Bilodeau for two special art tour experiences in Boston.
We’ll begin with a private guided tour of the exhibition William Trost Richards: Hieroglyphs of Landscape at the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College, led by McMullen Museum of Art Curator Jeffery Howe, Inaugural Robert L. and Judith T. Winston Director Nancy Netzer and William Vareika, owner of Vareika Fine Arts, who is an abiding champion of Richards’ work.
William Trost Richards: Hieroglyphs of Landscape is a breathtaking exhibition of nearly 200 oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and sketchbooks, including works on loan from the Newport Art Museum and Vareika Fine Arts. This important career survey reveals how Richards’ landscapes and seascapes manifest the Romantics’ hieroglyphic interpretation of nature, a metaphor embraced by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.
Following our visit to the McMullen Museum of Art, we will travel to the Harvard Art Museums where, after a delicious lunch in Harvard Square, we will enjoy self-guided visits of the current exhibitions: Winslow Homer: Eyewitness and Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art.
