Eye & Mind
Presented to celebrate the opening of Vanderbilt’s newly renovated and expanded galleries, the exhibition Eye & Mind illustrates the breadth and depth of the collection, now in its fifty-third year. The updated presentation for 2010 features nineteen new works of art ranging from Baroque sculpture to Pop Art. The title for this exhibition, drawn from an essay on Cezanne by the philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty, seeks to capture two important aspects of the aesthetic experience, apprehending the work of art and understanding it in its historical and artistic context. The gallery is located in the Cohen Memorial Hall at 1220 21st Avenue South, a jewel of a building and worth a visit to see its architecture and recent renovations.
This event is free and runs through May 13, 2010. For gallery hours, please visit: www.vanderbilt.edu/gallery.
