Exhibition Tour: American Watercolors, 1880–1990: Into the Light

Join Elisa Germán, curator at Colby College Museum of Art, on Sunday, June 25 for an in-depth discussion about works in the exhibition "American Watercolors, 1880–1990: Into the Light," on view until Sunday, August 13. Germán will share insights about the making of the exhibition, which seeks to inspire conversations and enrich today’s practitioners of watercolor. "American Watercolors, 1880–1990" presents more than a hundred compelling and rarely seen watercolors by both well-known and historically underrepresented American artists selected from Harvard Art Museums’ deep and diverse holdings. Discover how watercolorists leveraged the imaginative and experimental capacity of the medium to create marvelously diverse works over more than a century.

Tours are limited to 18 people, and reservations are required. At 10am the day of the tour, reservations will open and may be arranged online. The tour reservation will also serve as a general museum reservation. If required, visitors will pay the museum admission fee upon arrival.
