Hood Quarterly, spring 2014

The tension between visual punch and global industrial “documentation” is a signature of photographer Edward Burtynsky’s work, and the Hood’s recent acquisition is a stunning example of this. In this photograph, Burtynsky explores the interconnectedness between industrial progress, geological history, and social human history through images of the marks we leave upon the Earth as a result of all three.

Recent Acquisitions: Richard Westall, Ophelia, 1793

Recent Acquisitions: José Clemente Orozco, The Elevated, 1928

Membership Matters: Lathrop Fellows

Hood Quarterly, winter 2014

This fall, the Lathrop Fellows, a special patron group of the Hood Museum of Art, went to London for their annual trip (which is a benefit available to all members of the museum at the Lathrop Fellows level or above). Led by Hood Director Michael Taylor, this four-day excursion included visits (some behind the scenes) to some of London’s finest museums, opportunities to meet and learn from the directors and curators of those collections, and a visit to a private collection.
