ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Born almost exactly 100 years apart, the American painter Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) and the British critic and amateur artist John Ruskin (1819–1900) shared a life-long obsession for the close observation and finely rendered imagery of the world around them. This exhibition places the work of Andrew Wyeth and John Ruskin together for the first time examining their varying approaches to interpreting the natural world.

Marc Bamuthi Joseph
Jun 15 @ 8:00 pm
Marc Bamuthi Joseph @ The Grand Opera House

Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s new multimedia performance work/peh-LO-tah/ links art and sport to notions of camaraderie, pride, and tradition across cultures.  Inspired by memories of playing soccer growing up, Joseph draws on his experiences as a child of Haitian immigrants, chronicles of his travels to World Cups in South Africa and Brazil, and his explosive hip-hop style.  The soccer technique-inspired choreography complements the musical narratives performed in English and Portuguese with the backdrop of South African drums, inspirational gospel, and the power of poetic verse.

Jonah Bokaer
Sep 8 @ 8:00 pm
Jonah Bokaer @ Delaware Art Museum Copeland Sculpture Garden

Jonah Bokaer’s engaging performance, REPLICA, will be held in the Museum’s Copeland Sculpture Garden. Through the use of videos and still images, REPLICA creates situations that could not exist in physical space. Bokaer has cultivated a new form of choreography with a structure that relies on visual art and design, and his aim is to transform notions of how the public sees and understands dance. He completed a dual degree in visual and media arts at the New School in New York City while dancing with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.  His work has been presented at MASS MoCA, MoMA PS1, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Institut Valenciá d’Art Modern in Spain, among many others nationally and abroad.

Concerts on Kentmere: Pyxis Piano Quartet @ Delaware Art Museum

Pyxis Piano Quartet performs chamber concerts that include works from the sonata, duo, and trio repertoire as well as traditional and contemporary masterpieces for piano quartet.

Compelling, engaging and informative, the vibrant performances of Pyxis Piano Quartet have become increasingly sought after in the mid-Atlantic region. The Philadelphia Inquirer has described Pyxis as “excellent,” and Christine Facciolo (deartsinfo.com) stated in a recent review “balance, ensemble, superb intonation and sensitive interpretation characterized this performance.”

Each concert begins with a short curator talk exploring connections with the collection.  The Thronson Café serves drinks and light fare before each concert; coffee and desserts are served at intermission.
