Peninsula Fine Arts Center
A special exhibition of works by Marc Chagall, drawn from the permanent collection of museums throughout Virginia and North Carolina. The works provide a glimpse into the influential avant-garde styles that converged in Paris during the early 20th century. Chagall grew up in Russia, but moved to Paris in 1911 to further master his craft.
“Chagall for Children” is a unique, hands-on experience designed to introduce families to Chagall’s work. The exhibition showcases 15 multi-sensory exploration stations, each incorporating a high-quality reproduction of one of Marc Chagall’s works. Books about the artist are provided to encourage further exploration and stimulate literacy learning.
Additionally on view, the “The Glow of Paris” by Gary Zuercher. His romance with Paris and its bridges at night are captured in 35 unique photographs. Zuercher’s manipulation of the camera and playing with shadow and light effects, isolates and elevates these important architectural symbols of Paris far beyond their daily, prosaic function.
