Two new exhibitions at Newport Art Museum

Posted

The Newport Art Museum is pleased to announce two new exhibitions on view through April 25. "Abstract Ideas" features an array of modern and contemporary American artists from the Museum’s permanent collection exploring ideas and emotions through abstraction. "Light and Presence: Richard Benson’s 'The Touro Synagogue,'" curated by Megan Horn, features Benson's 1988 black and white portfolio of images that go beyond simply documenting architecture and allow viewers to experience the intimacy of the site. Designed by architect Peter Harrison and completed in 1763, the Touro Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in the United States.
