Sanctity Pictured: The Art of the Dominican and Franciscan Orders in Renaissance Italy is the first exhibition dedicated to Italian Renaissance art in Nashville since 1934. The exhibition explores the role of the two major new religious orders in the revival of the arts in Italy during the period 1200 to 1550. On view from October 31, 2014, to January 25, 2015, the exhibition presents drawings, illuminated manuscripts, liturgical objects, paintings, prints, printed books and sculptures drawn from the collections of major American and European libraries and museums, including works of art from the Vatican Library and Vatican Museums that have never before been exhibited in the United States.
William Edmondson was not only the first African-American artist to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1937 he also has left a very tangible legacy in Nashville and beyond. Some of the city’s parks, streets, civic buildings, and historic markers bear his name. In 2014 the Edmondson Park will be reopened after extensive renovation and addition of two commissioned sculptures by the artists Thornton Dial and Lonnie Holley. The Edmondson Park Public Art Project will have several community outreach components, including the Oasis Center, Lipscomb University/Ayers Institute for Teacher Learning and Innovation and Cheekwood. Cheekwood’s exhibition will highlight the Edmondson sculptures from its permanent collection supplemented by selected loans from other collections. This will be the first survey exhibition of Edmondson’s work since Cheekwood organized the William Edmondson traveling exhibition in 2000-2001. Edmondson is a luminary in the story of 20th century American art and has served as a source of inspiration for many other artists, even during his lifetime. This exhibition presents Edmondson in the company of select works by sculptors and painters who have followed in his footsteps. . September 27 - January 3, 2015
