Vernissages | "From its course into channels" Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College

The fourteen exhibitions From its course into channels opened yesterday at the Hessel Museum of Art, at the CCS (Center for Curatorial Studies) of Bard College. The exhibitions included works of over forty artists, and were organized by the graduating class of the master of arts program in curatorial studies. The curation presented "diverse methodologies, research interests, and exhibition formats - from focused solo shows to new commissions and thematic exhibitions".

It was a relaxing and inspirational day, walking in art and nature in the beautiful campus of Bard College, including a stroll in the Blithewood Gardens, designed circa 1903 by Frances Hoppin. The formal garden (walled Italian) presents a gazebo at the focal point of its main axis, framing views of the Hudson River.
