The Modern at Art Place
Be one of the first to experience the magic of Venice during this in-person exhibition preview. Join us as we celebrate the opening of the highly anticipated Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Explore the dazzling Venetian glass revival of the nineteenth century, which inspired American artists such as John Singer Sargent and James McNeill Whistler. Featuring more than 140 objects, it is the first comprehensive examination of American tourism, artmaking, and art collecting in Venice, revealing the glass furnaces and their new creative boom as a vibrant facet of the city’s allure. Discover a selection of rarely seen glass vessels presented alongside paintings, watercolors, and prints. Sparkling wine and food inspired by the magic of Venice will be available for purchase. Masking is required when not actively eating or drinking. Space is limited, social distancing is encouraged.
