Bridging Two American Muralists: Daniel Garber and Edward Steichen

  • Michener Art Museum (map)

Through a new partnership with Art Bridges the Michener Art Museum is advancing the history of American art by mounting Edward Steichen’s rarely seen suite of seven large-scale murals, In Exaltation of Flowers (1910-1914), alongside the permanent installation of a keystone in the Museum collection—Daniel Garber’s A Wooded Watershed (1926).

This special installation builds on new scholarship that has emerged from the Michener in recent years through cross-institutional relationships designed to widen the lens and perspectives of artists working in the Delaware Valley by placing them in context with key innovators from around the country. Creating an immersive mural installation with compelling contrasts, the Michener aims to provide visitors with a unique cultural learning opportunity that sheds new light on two major, rare, large-scale works by distinct, significant American artists.
