Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington

Implementation of a traveling exhibition exploring the lives and sociocultural impacts of painter Winslow Homer (1836–1910) and painter and sculptor Frederic Remington (1861–1909) on fin-de-siècle America. 

With more than fifty paintings, watercolors, illustrations, and sculptures, Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, brings together many of Homer and Remington’s most iconic oil paintings, watercolors, and sculptures to examine how each embodied a quintessential American identity for audiences at the turn of the century. This timely and vital project explores the ways in which Homer’s late marine seascapes and Remington’s visions of the Western plains responded to profound cultural and social changes in the United States in the late 19th-century, and how these linkages resonate in contemporary society.
