Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham

June 15 - September 8, 2019
 
Seen & Unseen presents iconographic works alongside rediscovered images from this great American artist. It is the first exhibition tour of Cunningham's photographs in the United States in 20 years, giving new generations an in-depth view of her work.

American Brilliant Cut Glass

New World Innovation from 1876-1917
 
This collection captures the unique beauty of American Brilliant Cut Glass, which first broke free from the dominant European glass market in 1876. For centuries, American glass makers fell short of the European standard, but with increased immigration to America in the 19th century, European artisans brought their expertise to the U.S., and American glassmaking began to thrive.

Art Club thursday | 5:00 pm

The FWMoA Art Club is a group of teens who want to think bigger and bolder through their ideas about art and creativity by being part of a community of highly talented and motivated teens from across our region. The Art Club uses Group Dynamics, which allows the students to share their deep interest for the arts with like minds, use each other as a resource for brainstorming ways to improve their work, and it also raises the expectation of every student's capabilities. The Fort Wayne Museum of Art leads the group by exposing students to contemporary art, presenting sketchbook assignments, and giving students feedback on their work, all of which has greatly increased Art Club members' success with not only the National Scholastic program, but also in garnering college scholarships. The Art Club is open to any teen Middle or High School student interested in the visual arts. The Club meets monthly while school is in session. This is a free resource for students to enjoy.
