Author, innovator, and educator Dorothy Canfield Fisher stated “The Vermont tradition grapples energetically with the basic problem of human conduct... how to reconcile the needs of the group... with the craving for individual freedom.” Inspired by this quote, world-renowned illustration expert, Roger Reed, will curate a special “pop-up” exhibition at The Bennington Museum focusing on the delicate balance of individual liberty and community responsibility. The exhibition will feature works by the Arlington illustrators (Rockwell, Atherton, Pelham, Schaeffer, and Hughes) as well as other celebrated artists. The exhibition concludes on Sunday, August 5, 2018.
Join us at the exhibition opening on Friday, July 13 5-7pm. This coincides with the Museum's exhibition Crash to Creativity: The New Deal in Vermont on view June 30 through November 4
