Behind the Museum Walls: Thoughts From a Curator

13 Apr

Good morning, all! 

Do you ever wonder how pieces are chosen for museum exhibits?  Why one work makes the cut but another doesn’t?  I just read this interesting little article written by Katharine Stout, curator of the new exhibit, “Watercolour” at the Tate in London.  A fascinating look behind the choices of work and use of watercolors today.   Although traditional watercolor landscapes have a long history in Britain, Stout chose to focus on contemporary work, making the exhibit more relevant for today.   

Hope you enjoy this little peek behind the museum walls!
