Pen to Paper: Artists’ Handwritten Letters from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art
March 13, 2018$10
On view through May 6, 2018, “Pen to Paper: Artists’ Handwritten Letters from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art” reveals the beauty and intimacy of the craft of letter writing. From casually jotted notes to elaborately decorated epistles, Pen to Paper explores the handwriting of celebrated artists such as Alexander Calder, Mary Cassatt, Howard Finster, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock and many others. To complement the Smithsonian’s collection, handwritten letters from the Museum’s archives form the exhibition, “P.S.: Letters from the Lyme Art Colony.” Paintings from the Florence Griswold Museum and works from private collections hang alongside selected artists’ letters.
$10 adults; free for kids 12 and under.
