The Night Sound Considered
December 10, 2021 – January 30, 2022

The Night Sound Considered features a small grouping of works from the permanent collection reprised from our winter 2020 The Night Sound exhibition, a show that embraced the winter season—its moodiness and call for introspection, as well as its darkness in both palette and subject. Visitors (in person or virtual) are encouraged to explore the themes of the original exhibition through a personal essay written by Robyn Groth, inspired by her visit in 2020, titled “A Stretch of Truth.” Robyn’s illustrated essay is available as a take-away at the Hearst, or can be found and shared online at thehearst.org/exhibitions/nightsound.
