“Cross Pollination: Heade, Cole, Church, and Our Contemporary Movement”

“Cross Pollination” takes flight from the influential series of paintings The Gems of Brazil (1863-64) by Martin Johnson Heade but expands outward to explore pollination in nature and ecology, cultural and artistic influence and exchange, and the interconnection between art and science, extending from the nineteenth century into the twenty-first. A Wake Forest University event on May 21-May 23 at Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
