  • Instagram was not built overnight. Set in Stone: Lithography in Paris, 1815-1900, opening January 20, explores how artists and a handful of entrepreneurs refined a new medium to strike a balance between individual creative vision and a growing demand for mass produced images, setting the stage for the rich visual culture that we encounter every day. This major exhibition is complemented by Place on Stone: Nineteenth-Century Landscape Lithographs, opening January 13, which focuses on landscape as a subject of interest among British and French artists. Join us for a preview of Set in Stone on Friday, January 19, from 5:30 to 8:30pm! Free and open to the public.
