In conjunction with The Poetry of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society, we are celebrating the American collections of the Allentown Art Museum with a special temporary installation. Featuring nineteenth-century landscapes in paint and on paper by artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran, this exhibition presents sublime, dramatic, and contemplative scenery from Niagara Falls to Bethlehem.

American Vistas is supported through the generosity of the Harry C. Trexler Trust, Julius and Katheryn Hommer Foundation, The Century Fund, Bernard and Audrey Berman Foundation, Leon C. and June W. Holt Endowment, Martin Guitar Charitable Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and Friends of the Museum.
