Presented at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site and Olana State Historic Site

Please join us to experience this new exhibition exploring the theme of "cross pollination" in art and the environment from the 19th century to the contemporary moment. The project stems from the artist Martin Johnson Heade's 19th century painting series of hummingbird and habitats and includes major paintings by Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, and contemporary art by Nick Cave, Jeffrey Gibson, Paula Hayes, Maya Lin, and more. "Cross Pollination: Martin Johnson Heade, Frederic Church, Thomas Cole, and Our Contemporary Moment" was created by Thomas Cole National Historical Site, The Olana Partnership at Olana State Historic Site, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas. Its tour is organized by Crystal Bridges. To learn more visit https://www.hudsonriverskywalk.org/crosspollination
