Chester Arnold: On Earth as It is in Heaven

Through October 17, 2010
For Chester Arnold, painting is as much about politics and social responsibility as it is about crafting luscious, large-scale oil paintings. For over three decades, Arnold has cleverly confronted a variety of challenging subjects ranging from land use issues to the global impacts of human and industrial consumption, accumulation, and waste. Originated by the Museum, this exhibition features approximately thirty paintings and will be accompanied by a book with essays by Ann M. Wolfe and Colin M. Robertson that is available for purchase in the Store.
