Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art presents: In American Waters: The Sea in American Painting. An exhibition exploring over 200 years of art inspired by the beauty, violence, poetry and transformative power of the sea.  The exhibition will include Digital Wave, a computer generated video on LED wall.

Join us in Portland, Maine for a showcase of work centered around a relentless exploration of the natural world, prompting audiences to engage with the vitality and wonder of nature itself in an era of global climate change, as well as to reconsider the condition of the photograph.

Watch, as Dan Finamore, Associate Director - Exhibitions, The Russell W. Knight Curator of Maritime Art and History, walks through the exhibition In American Waters: The Sea in American Painting with artist Clifford Ross. Clifford has a lifelong interest in representing the sea in a range of media, and his Digital Wave is featured prominently in the show. 

Moutain IV will be on display as part of the contemporary exhibition, The Expanded Landscape. The exhibit also includes work by photographers Virginia Beahan, Laura McPhee, Hai Bo, Susan Derges, and Richard Misrach, which favor graphically abstract compositions, elevated vantage points that eliminate the horizon, experimental techniques, or personal relationships with a specific landscape.
