Big Benton Exhibition
The Tisbury School will end its traveling art exhibitions with Thomas Hart Benton, the American muralist and seasonal Vineyarder who delved into the images of heroic everyday Americans during the era of the Great Depression.
The exhibition celebrates ordinary people who made America great. Given the artist’s strong Vineyard ties, his fans sometimes speculate that the faces of individual Island personalities can be found in his murals.
The exhibition is truly unique in its size: the three reproductions measure 7’x17’, 4’x4’ and 4’x8’. The public is invited and the exhibit will be hanging in the main school hallway all next week.
