    At the end of the 1800s, the introduction of artificial lighting was as profound as digital technology is today. Developments in artificial lighting affected how Americans perceived color, depth and brightness. Artists responded to innovations in lighting technology and the impact it had on life, and helped Americans navigate the cultural transformation that artificial lighting sparked. This exhibition features paintings, works on paper and decorative objects from the Munson Williams Proctor Museum of Utica, NY.

    Brief remarks at 6 p.m. by Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Kirsty Buchanan.
