The Orlando Museum of Art is presenting an exhibition from its large collection of American Art. “Nature and Spirit: American Art of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries” is on view from January 9 - March 21, 2010.

Artists help shape our concept of what we see as beautiful and inspiring about nature. “Nature and Spirit” features 25 paintings, sculptures, ceramics and other decorative arts of the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. The selection offers a historical overview of the engagement of leading American artists with the landscape and shows some of the ways in which evolving ideas about nature are expressed in art.

The American Art Collection at the Orlando Museum of Art includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures. The museum’s holdings feature works by artists such as John Singer Sargent, Thomas Moran, George Inness, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams, Suzanne McClelland, Robert Rauschenberg, Pat Steir, Morris Louis, John Chamberlain and Dennis Oppenheim.

In order to enrich the cultural life of Florida, the museum has dedicated itself to collecting, preserving and interpreting notable works of art; to presenting exhibitions of local, regional, national, and international significance; to developing first-rate educational programs; and to presenting creative and inclusive programs to reach every segment of the community.
