Mallord William Turner (1775–1851)
was a central figure in the Romantic movement and is considered to be
among the greatest landscape painters in Western art. Long admired
for his ingenuity, originality, and passion, Turner strove to convey
the feeling of awe aroused by nature’s immensity and power—its
palpable atmospheres, pulsating energy, the drama of storms and
disasters, and the transcendent effect of pure light. On view in
for the Sublime are
seminal oil paintings, luminous watercolors, and evocative sketches
selected from Tate’s Turner Bequest. The exhibition conveys
highlights of the artist’s career, from vertiginous mountain scenes
and stormy seascapes to epic history paintings and mysterious views

co-presented by the Frist Art Museum and Adkins’s alma mater Fisk
University forty-five years after his graduation, the exhibition will
feature works influenced by his time at Fisk, where he was mentored

an installation of fifty American flags—one from each
state—suspended row after row from the ceiling and surrounding a
stage where museum visitors and special guests are invited to speak
or present performances relating to the meaning of the flag in their
own lives. The flags themselves symbolize a nation that has survived
tumult and stress. They were collected from 2011 to 2016, when
Ziegler periodically drove across the United States with a supply of
new American flags, offering a broad spectrum of society—from
suburban residents to farmers and small business owners—an
opportunity to receive new flags in exchange for their old torn and
weathered ones. Displayed in a gallery, the symbolism of rows of
tattered, irregular flags encourages reflection on America’s
identity, history, and future.

the end of the nineteenth century, the Glasgow
Style emerged as the major manifestation of Art
Nouveau in Britain and established Glasgow as the
Second City of the Empire. This exhibition showcases Charles
Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928)—the greatest exponent of the
Glasgow Style—as an architect, designer, and artist, and
contextualizes his production within a larger circle of designers and
craftspeople in the major Scottish city. Mackintosh worked most
closely with his wife, Margaret
Macdonald (1864–1933); Margaret’s sister, Frances
Macdonald (1873–1921); and Frances’ husband, James
Herbert McNair (1868–1955). They met as students at the
progressive Glasgow School of Art in 1892 and together were known as
influences from the Arts
and Crafts Movement, Celtic
Revival, and Japonism,
Glasgow artists created their own modern design aesthetic synonymous
with sleek lines and emphatic geometries expressed in a wide range of
materials. The exhibition presents 165 works of fine and decorative
art, including architectural drawings, books, ceramics, furniture,
posters, textiles, and watercolors, drawn from Glasgow’s most
significant public and private collections.

throughout the world to reflect the splintered experience of
migration, identity, tradition, and culture often prevalent in
diasporic communities. In a single sculpture, one can find African
tribal jewelry, colorful feathers, light bulbs, Murano glass, and
South Asian antiques. This is the first major survey of Banerjee’s
work in the United States and includes large-scale installations,

The exhibition features more than eighty objects, including ancestral figures, masks, ceremonial costumes, headdresses, ritual objects and reliquary guardian figures, drawn from one of the most important collections of traditional sub-Saharan African art in the United States. Created by artists from Gabon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cameroon, Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali and Ghana, these works of art are made from wood, ivory, stone, terra cotta, beadwork and brass. Displayed thematically—with contextual and archival photographs and video—the exhibition illuminates the various ways in which objects facilitate ancestral veneration, as well as the transmission and interconnection of artistic style.
Bologna: Art for a University City

is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus on
medieval art made in the northern Italian city of Bologna. Home to
the oldest university in Europe, Bologna fostered a unique artistic
culture at the end of the Middle Ages. With its large population of
sophisticated readers, the city became the preeminent center of
manuscript production south of the Alps and it helped bring about a
revolution in the medieval book trade. Manuscripts circulated in a
thriving market of scribes, illuminators, booksellers, and customers
operating mostly outside traditional monastic scriptoria. The
university initially specialized in law, and many law books were
illuminated in Bologna with brightly colored scenes. University
professors enjoyed high social status and were buried in impressive
stone tombs carved with classroom scenes.
approximately 65 objects in the exhibition span from 1250 to 1400,
from the first great flowering of manuscript illumination in Bologna
to the beginnings of the construction and decoration of the ambitious
Basilica of San Petronio in the city’s Piazza Maggiore. Lenders
include the Cleveland Museum of Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, Lilly
Library, New York Public Library, and University of Chicago Library.

The Iconic Spirits Brand and Famed Actor Will Take Over A House Party for one lucky Winner, Bringing Holiday Spirit, Fashionable Ugly Sweaters and a Larger-Than-Life Snow Globe
It isn’t a holiday party until you add CaptainMorgan (Celebrating life, every day, everywhere.)and Adam Devine, so this season, they’re hitting up (er, crashing) one lucky house party for the person with the most holiday cheer.

“With all the house parties happening this season, I challenge all my festive fans to give us the best reasons for coming to their holiday soiree because I’ve got my ugly sweater and frosted cookies ready,” said Devine. “I don’t know where the evening will take us, but one thing’s for sure, it’s going to be one helluva night in.”
Captain Morgan and Devine will then select a winner and transform one holiday house party into the ultimate “Captain’s Night In,” with bright lights on the outside, holiday sweaters galore, a life-sized snow globe and more.
