Inner Light: The World of William Bradford
Inner Light: The World of William Bradford, a retrospective exhibition of William Bradford’s (1923-1892) life, career, connections and influences has opened at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and runs until June 2017.
Like many other artists of his time, Bradford was an artist-explorer. He made six trips to the Arctic between 1861 and 1869, and ventured to California and the great West on the heels of Albert Bierstadt. Inner Light includes Bradford works from the Museum’s collections along with works by Bierstadt, Eldred, Gifford and others who were integral parts of his story. An accompanying exhibition of important manuscripts, sketchbooks, and works on paper will also be on display in the Museum’s Grimshaw-Gudewicz Reading Room.
WHERE: New Bedford Whaling Museum, 18 Johnny Cake Hill, New Bedford
WHEN: Through June 2017
COST: Free with admission
