In A New Light: American Impression 1870 – 1940 explores both the dissemination of Impressionism from its French roots into the American idiom and its reinterpretation of American landscape painting. Drawn from the Bank of America Collection, the works in the exhibition, by a diverse group of more than 75 artists, trace not only the development of Impressionism in the United States but also the emergence of a truly American style of painting.
The art in In A New Light: American Impression 1870 – 1940 has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program which was established in 2009 in order to share the company’s art collection with the widest possible audience. Comprising the art collections of the predecessor banks that are now part of Bank of America, the program offers museums and nonprofit galleries the opportunity to borrow complete or customized exhibitions at no cost. The public is able to enjoy new art installations at its local museums, while the museums themselves are able to generate vital revenue. Since 2009, more than 130 exhibitions have been loaned through this one-of-a-kind program.
