Special Exhibition: Afterglow (45 minutes)

Opening May 12! Don’t miss this guided exploration of this season’s special exhibition, “Afterglow: Frederic Church and the Landscape of Memory.” This exhibition reflects on art and landscape as sources of comfort and remembrance, an ideal found throughout Olana’s artist-designed environment. At the heart of this exhibition are a selection of Frederic Church’s rarely seen memorial landscape paintings. These intimate works full of personal symbolism demonstrate how Church and his family found peace after loss. In addition to Church’s paintings, you will see work of his contemporaries, and compelling historical artifacts, which all serve as key documents of nineteenth-century America’s search for spirituality in nature and ways of remembering loved ones.

This tour requires several flights of stairs and is not ADA accessible.
