Final Week of Coming of Age in Venice

This is just a quick reminder that the Peggy Guggenheim Collection venue of our traveling exhibition Coming of Age: American Art, 1850s to 1950s closes this coming Sunday, October 12th, in Venice, Italy. The show has been an incredible success there and our Venetian collegues are sad to see it go.

But not to worry, the show will soon open at the Museum of Art-Fort Lauderdale in Florida (see left) on Thursday, November 6th where it will be on view until March 23rd, 2009. Then, the show will leave the United States again, this time traveling to Canada to the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in Québec City. This newly added venue will run May 28th, 2009 through September 7th, 2009.

I will be traveling with a group of the show's objects as they make their way from Venice to Florida, and I plan to devote a future Blog Addison post about my adventures. So stay tuned!
