The Currier Museum of Art exhibition, Urban Landscapes: Manchester and the Modern American City, is on view through August 29, 2016. The urban environment has been a constant source of inspiration for artists, particularly since the rise of the city during the Industrial Revolution and subsequent rapid modernization during the 20th century. This exhibition presents paintings, prints and photographs inspired by cities throughout the United States, including Manchester, the Currier’s post-industrial metropolitan home. The works in this exhibition feature realistic, romanticized and abstracted views of the cities’ most defining features—such as Manchester’s Amoskeag Mills and the skyscrapers of New York City. Poignant street scenes reveal the diverse experiences of city-dwellers.
The Museum’s entrance is located at 150 Ash Street and free parking is available in the on-site lot. Museum hours are Sunday, Monday, Wednesday-Friday 11 a.m.–5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., with extended hours until 9 p.m. during Currier After Hours events, typically the first Thursday of each month. Closed Tuesday. Admission to the Museum is always free for children 12 and younger and Museum Members. Special exhibition charges still apply. More information at www. CURRIER.ORG
