Hyde Collection Receives $200,000 from Luce Foundation

T he Henry Luce Foundation has awarded The Hyde Collection a grant of $200,000 in support of the Museum’s exhibition “Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George,” its accompanying catalogue, and national tour. The exhibition, which will open at The Hyde on June 15, 2013, is curated by Erin B. Coe, the Museum’s interim co-director and chief curator, and is organized in association with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Modern Nature will be the centerpiece of The Hyde Collection’s 50th anniversary year.

“Modern Nature” will be the first exhibition to examine the significant body of artistic work created by O’Keeffe of and at Lake George from 1918 to the mid-1930s.  Through a selection of 60 works from public and private collections, the exhibition will demonstrate that Lake George served as a rural retreat for the artist, inspired her art, and evoked the spirit of place that was essential to O’Keeffe’s modern approach to the natural world.

Modern Nature will open June 15 at The Hyde Collection and remain on view until Sept. 15, 2013.  It will travel to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, from Oct. 4, 2013 through Jan. 26, 2014; and then to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, de Young Museum, Feb. 8 through May 11, 2014.
