To support Cross Pollination: Heade, Cole, Church, and Our Contemporary Moment, an exhibition co-organized by the Olana State Historic Site, the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, and Crystal Bridges. Examining the complex relationships between art, nature, and science through the lens of three nineteenth-century artists, the exhibition highlights the metaphorical pollination of ideas among artists and between artists and scientists, in the nineteenth century and today. The exhibition travels to the co-organizing venues, as well as to the Cummer Museum and Gardens and Reynolda House Museum of American Art, and it is accompanied by an English-language catalogue.
