Past Time: Geology in European and American Art 

When: Sept. 21-Dec. 9 2018
The exhibition, curated by Patricia Phagan, is a broad display of watercolors, drawings, oil sketches, and sketchbooks, and looks at studies made by European and American artists from the 1770s to the 1890s who were engaged with a new scientific investigation of the earth’s crust. This inquiry came to be called geology, and it emerged from a mix of interests in minerals and their applications in industry, curiosity about rocks and other features and how they were formed, and theories about how the earth began.
