Supernatural America: The Paranormal in American Art will be on display from June.
TOLEDO, Ohio – The Toledo Museum of Art’s newest exhibit will explore the paranormal.
Supernatural America: The Paranormal in American Art will be on display from June 12th to September 12th. 5. This is the first museum exhibit to fully examine this relationship between American artists and the supernatural.
The exhibition was organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art and features works from the early 19th century to the present day. It contains 150 objects. The museum displays paintings, sculptures, drawings, sketchbooks, diaries, photographs, clothing, and more.
“Whether through early pseudoscientific studies of understanding parapsychology, government documentation of UFOs, or individual settlements with the spirits of the deceased, American culture is full of stories of the supernatural and reports of paranormal experiences,” said Lauren Applebaum, associate curator of American art at TMA : “This complex and multifaceted topic has seduced American artists for centuries and is still convincing to the audience at TMA today.”
Supernatural America explores the US as a haunted place and the potential of multiple universes. Many living and contemporary artists have presented their work.
Admission is free for museum members and $ 12 for non-members. Tickets are $ 10 for the military, college students, and seniors, and $ 7 for children ages 5-17. Children under 4 years are free.
