Curator’s Tour - Telling Tales: Stories and Legends in 19th-Century American Art

Assembling paintings and sculptures from the collection of the New-York Historical Society, Telling Tales explores how nineteenth-century American works of art expressed the young country’s aspirations through narrative. This exhibition features influential American artists such as Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, and John Rogers. Join Frist Center Chief Curator Mark Scala for a tour of this exhibition and a glimpse at the artwork that helped shape America.
