March 9 - April 12, 2021

Virtual Juror Talk with Benjamin Colman

Open to the public. LIVE on Facebook on Saturday, March 13th at 2:00pm

This exhibition is organized through the efforts of the Detroit Institute of Arts and made possible by the Nancy and Sean Cotton Collection. The presentation at the Anton Art Center consists of thirteen artworks by nine artists, and is made possible through a community partnership funded by Macomb County millage support.

The honorary committee for this exhibition includes Suzanne P. and Gebran S. Anton, Nancy and Sean Cotton, Mary Anne and Gene Gargaro, Honorable Laura and Paul Kropp, Candice S. Miller, Terri L. North, and Alex May and Salvador Salort-Pons.

This particular collection consists of a number of scenes painted in the late 19th century, among them: Hamilton Hamilton, Hush, Do Not Disturb Them, about 1890; Aaron Bohrod, Skokie Park Auto, 1935; Vincent Jannelli, Cityscape, 1936; and Jane Peterson, Women and Children in the Park, 1908.

These paintings depict a bygone way of life from a distinct historical era of this country, and have not been exhibited in Macomb County before, making this an excellent opportunity to experience the collection first-hand. The selected pieces from the collection consists of 13 oil paintings from nine artists, originally painted between the years 1852 and 1939.

The Anton Art Center welcomes the public to visit for Visions of American Life: Selections from the Nancy and Sean Cotton Collection of American Art during their regular open hours at no charge. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.; admission is free and open to the public.

For the best experience, the Anton Art Center encourages calling ahead to schedule a visit, however, walk-ins are welcome.
