‪We visited the museum on a Saturday in September. Museum was not crowded then. Price for the museum was reasonable. There were a lot of very impressive paintings throughout the museum, I had a very nice time. I especially liked the area showing the paintings of natural scenery. There is also a cafe there, it had some good salads, and we got to eat on the patio outside as it was a nice day.‬

‪We visited here using our "after 5 PM on Thursday discount" timed online ticket($5 ea senior). The museum has an open feel with exhibits well marked and one can quickly spot favorites to study. Ours were; 1832 "Boston Harbor: Long and Central Wharves," Robert Salmon, 1897 "In the Shenandoah Valley (Off the Main Road)," by Edward Lamson Henery, 1944 "Mrs. Cushman's House," by N.C. Wyeth, 2019 "Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall." by Louise Jones, 1906 "Reading Tea Leaves," by Harry Herman Roseland, 2006 "Blue and Beyond Blue," Dale Chihuly. Blown glass sculpture.
The museum's masterpiece is the 3 wall mural by Thomas Hart Benton called "The Arts of Life in America" painted in 1932. Wonderful museum with eclectic collection.‬

‪One of my favorite things to do in Connecticut is to visit places that seem "off the hidden path", or at least not as well known, and this museum did not disappoint. This isn't a big museum and is manageable in a couple of hours, but doesn't disappoint for variety of exhibits. The building itself is pretty without being distracting, and there was a fantastic exhibit on female-identifying artist in the US throughout US history - well worth a visit for its own sake. The permanent exhibits are arranged chronologically from colonial times to the present, and you can wander at your leisure to absorb the fantastic art. There are a dizzying number of artists represented here, and it was so nice to see a change from the more highly-known "traditional" artists.‬

‪Outstanding collections from all periods. Just the right size so as not to fatigue. I like going through chronologicaly from colonial times to the present. And the museum's special exhibits and New/Now are always, if nothing else, creative and interesting. As a member I am prejudiced. In the last 25 years I have seen NBMAA grow from being overlooked and underestimated to become world class in a gorgeous new facility surrounded on one side by‬

‪My husband and I visited the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, Connecticut on Friday, August 14, 2020. We have been at this museum multiple times and have always enjoyed it because it has a very nice mixture of a wide variety of different types of artwork, in both its Permanent Collection and Special Exhibits. This time the Special Exhibits and the artwork in the Permanent Collection by women artists, were a nice tribute to the 100th anniversary of the of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. All the Special Exhibits on display were done by women artists, and were interesting, very unique, quite innovative and a good depiction of American History. In particular, we really enjoyed the Shaker Special Exhibit ‘Anything but Simple: Shaker Gift Drawings and the Women Who Made Them’. This exhibit was a nice complement to the collection of Shaker furniture and other Shaker objects on display in the adjacent gallery. . .

All the artwork in this museum is nicely curated and all the write-ups throughout the museum are detailed and provide good background information, including good historical, cultural, social and political perspectives, depending upon what is applicable. The timed tickets and layout of the exhibits enabled plenty of room to effectively social distance. Also, the navigation through the museum by arrows on the floor made our visit interesting, even through the Permanent Collection because you were directed through these galleries in reverse from how you would go through them normally, which allowed you to see things from a different perspective.

Our visit at the museum this time took a little over an hour, due to the amount of time that we had available, but it could easily have taken over 2 hours to be able to absorb and appreciate all the artwork on display. Our primary focus was on the special exhibits during this visit.

The museum has convenient, ample free parking as well as a very nice gift shop. We recommend visiting this museum and we hope that you have the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we did.

Museum passes for free admission into this museum may be available through your local library. Also, currently the museum’s website states: Saturday admission from 10 a.m. to noon is free due to support from the American Savings Foundation.

Special Exhibits:

‘Kara Walker: Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated)’:

This exhibit interestingly and innovatively uses unique cut-paper silhouettes overlaying prints of Civil War events to construct provocative narratives that expose or confront inequalities, prejudices and stereotypes that pervade society. These prints illustrate experiences of racism and violence against African Americans, that were not adequately portrayed or left out of the historical representations of the Civil War, so that specific events could be shown “just as they occurred” from Kara Walker’s perspective. Also on display in the exhibit were a group of original Harper’s engravings of the Civil War by Winslow Homer in order to reveal the diverse perspectives of the Civil War and suggest history remains an always contested narrative..

‘In Thread and On Paper: Anni Albers in Connecticut’:

This exhibit nicely depicts Anni Albers’ diverse and inspiring career as a weaver, textile artist as well as a pioneering, designer, printmaker, and educator. The exhibit illustrates the transformation of her career from weaving, to texts to drawings to printmaking by showing the artistic and commercial work that she created after moving to New Haven, Connecticut in 1950. She used the power of abstraction and her reliance on her knowledge of materials to go from the original state of the material being used in her creations and partake in the stages of its change. This is a quite interesting exhibit, in particular, if you like textiles.

‘Anything but Simple: Shaker Gift Drawings and the Women Who Made Them’.

During the period known as the Era of Manifestations of Shaker society, members of the Shakers created drawings inspired by spiritual revelations or supernatural gifts that expressed messages of love, dedication to Shaker belief., and the promise of heaven following the journey on earth. These drawings are an anomaly for the Shakers because of their colorful and decorative nature. They depict the spiritual visions that flourished during a time of revival and rejuvenation in the Shaker world. The exhibit provides good background on the Shakers, their use of color, design, symbols and iconography.

In a society that exemplified spiritual equality among men and women, gift drawings were predominately a product of Shaker Sisters’ hands. Shaker spiritual leadership was shared by both men and women, with the Shaker Brothers having the visions and the Sisters translating the visions into art. The drawings were considered “gifts” because they were perceived as spiritual manifestations that could offer comfort through words and images, not as artistic ventures. This exhibit was nicely done and provided additional meaning to the architecture and design of the furniture and other Shaker objects on display in the adjoining gallery depicting the Shaker culture, religion, and unique way of life.

Permanent Exhibits:

As always we enjoyed the wide variety of artwork in the Permanent Collections in the museum, which included American Art representing a nation in Transition (from 1800 – 1850) memorializing the American Revolution, Hudson River School Landscape Paintings, American Impressionism, Regionalism and Realism Art, Colonial American Portraitures as well as art from the Gilded Age. We particularly enjoyed the Hudson River School Landscape Paintings, which are always quite nice to see.

Note that this write-up does not address all the exhibits at the museum, but rather those that we particularly enjoyed during our visit. There is much more than what is mentioned here.

Again, we recommend visiting this museum and we hope that you have the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we did.

‪This museum in New Britain is not all that large but gets really great exhibits every so often. They had a major exhibit from Chihuly the glass artist. Last year they had a great exhibit from Georgia O'Keeffe. They have exhibits devoted to women artist's this year. They also have a great permanent collection, especially of artists from the Hudson School. The permanent collection includes the famous Church painting of West Rock.

The museum overlooks Walnut Hill Park, a large public park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted that is spectacular on its own. On good weather days it makes a great combination visit.

I would suggest allocating about 2 hours to view the collections. The museum does have a good restaurant for lunch, so add some time if you want to eat. Admission can be expensive, but they have many opportunities to enter for free. Check the website or your library.‬

‪We made a return visit on a recent Sunday to view the first in a series of seven exhibits that will run all year long titled "2020/20+ Women".

The current exhibit is titled "Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War" (Annotated). Each of the 15 prints considers experiences of racism toward African Americans that were absent or only alluded to in historical representations of the Civil War. Each print was accompanied by a description that proved quite informative.

We also took time to view another temporary exhibit titled "The Art and Artists of Monhegan Island: Selections from the Charles J. and Irene Hamm Collection of Coastal Art". Though our favorite Monhegan artist, James Fitzgerald was not included, we enjoyed several of the paintings that brought back fond memories of 2-night stay on the island in 1994.‬

‪During breakfast met a local who suggested either art museum in New Britain or Hartford. We went to this one. She thought there was a "donation" but in face there's an entrance fee ($15 adults). I'm not an artsy person but really enjoyed wandering around at my own pace, looking at the pictures, paintings, statues, sculptures, etc. etc. Wide variety of artists, including some well-known ones (even I'd heard of them)! Allow at least two hours if you intend to enjoy and not rush through it. Free parking.‬
