THE RAINS ARE CHANGING FAST: NEW ACQUISITIONS IN CONTEXT

March 23, 2024 - September 1, 2024

The Rains are Changing Fast highlights artwork recently acquired by The Heckscher Museum of Art alongside a selection of key works long held in the Museums collection. For over a century, the Heckscher has been collecting and presenting art that explores the landscapes and social issues of its place and time. This exhibition, which takes its title from a 2021 video by Christine Sciulli, features new and beloved works of art that together reveal the diverse ways in which artists contend with environmental and cultural change. Created over a span of 175 years by 39 artists, the works are united by shared engagements with landscape, allegory, and abstraction. Some, like Richard MayhewPescadero (2014) or George InnessThe Pasture, Durham, Connecticut (c. 1879), present luminous, if precarious, visions of the American landscape. Others, including Deborah BuckThey Had Stars in Their Eyes (2020) and Dorothy DehnerLandscape (1976), employ modes of abstraction that speak to issues of gender and materiality. The resulting visual conversations emphasize the Museums ongoing commitment to social concerns, environmental issues, and Long Islands diverse communities.
