Marvel Over the Genius of William Blake at This Exhibit: Age of Aquarius
William Blake and the Age of Aquarius will explore the impact of British visionary poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827) on a broad range of American artists in the post-World War II period. This exhibition will be the first to consider how Blake’s art and ideas were absorbed and filtered through American visual artists from the mid-1940s through the 1960s when Blake became a model of non-conformity, individuality, and resistance to authority.
The exhibition will feature American artists for whom Blake was an important inspiration and will include more than 130 paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, films, and posters, as well as original Blake prints and illuminated books from collections throughout the United States.
At 415 Premier Apartments in Evanston, Illinois, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Thursday!
