The Voyage of The Icebergs Exhibition

On the eve of the Dallas Museum of Art's centennial anniversary, the DMA will celebrate Frederic Edwin Church's The Icebergs in the Museum's fourth-floor Tower Gallery. This masterwork of American painting will appear by itself, dramatically lit and richly accented with swags of crimson velvet drapes. This display emulates the
painting's original 1861 debut, when visitors stood in line and paid 25 cents to see a single spectacular work of art. The Icebergs and the chromolithograph made of the painting will also be on view in this exhibition.
