Spanish Colonial Art: The Beauty of Two Traditions
April 20, 2013 – August 25, 2013
The art of Spain reached the Americas on board the ships of the explorers, on the banners of the conquistadors, in illustrated Bibles, and in the form of small devotional images and portraits. Colonial Art of the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries represents a synthesis of imagery from Spain with that of the Americas, especially in areas with rich indigenous traditions and popular art forms, and embodies the blending of native traditions with those of Europe. Curated by Carol Damian.

Through his paintings, French-born artist, Robert Einbeck (1944) raises gun violence awareness in an attempt to inspire a world where the act of killing belongs to the past.

The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery allows visitors to experience interactive activities designed to educate and entertain. This state-of-the-art Discovery Gallery consists of 13 stations including the computer-based display, Picture Yourself, where a camera takes an image of a person’s face and reproduces it on a touch screen. Participants can then trace the contours of the face with their fingers and print the finished product. The Kenan-Flagler Discovery Gallery is possible due to the support of the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust was established in 1965 from the estate of William Rand Kenan, Jr., who was born in Wilmington in 1872 and graduated from UNC in 1894. Kenan was a scientist, chemical and mechanical engineer, business executive, dairy farmer and philanthropist.
