Exhibition Opening: Weather Report and Eva LeWitt

Event Details

Celebrate the opening of two exhibitions, Weather Report and Eva LeWitt.

Weather Report reveals the sky as a site where the aesthetic, the romantic, the political, the social, and the scientific co-exist and inform one another as explored by twenty-one artists, organized by Exhibitions Director Richard Klein. The depiction of weather phenomena in the visual arts is traditionally linked with either landscape painting or photography, but in the last two decades artists have increasingly turned to other media to explore weather and, by extension, the larger subject of the Earth’s atmosphere.

The first solo museum exhibition of artist Eva LeWitt (b. 1985) will debut a significant, new site-specific installation commissioned by The Aldrich, the artist’s largest to date, organized by Senior Curator Amy Smith-Stewart. LeWitt’s sculptural practice explores the visual interconnection of color, matter, shape, light, and gravity.

Participate in a hands-on all ages art-making workshop harnessing the power of the wind to create one-of-a-kind paintings in The Studio throughout the afternoon.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or beer on the front patio and purchase lunch from one of Fairfield County’s favorite food trucks while eating on the steps of the Museum’s outdoor amphitheater.

A roundtrip shuttle from Manhattan to the Museum is available. For more information and to purchase tickets visit shop.aldrichart.org.
