Join us to celebrate the unveiling of Beth Lipman’s Aspects of (American) Life. The latest addition to the Museum’s Appropriation & Inspiration series, this installation relates directly to Thomas Hart Benton’s epic murals The Art of Life in America. Borrowing objects depicted in the murals, Lipman creates a monumental three-dimensional still-life sculpture from clear glass as a meditation on the good fortunes of wealth and prosperity as well as the misfortunes that ensue from their abuse.
