"Cross Pollination: Heade, Cole, Church and Our Contemporary Moment" is a national collaborative exhibition exploring the theme of cross pollination in art and the environment from the 19th century to today. The project stems from the artist Martin Johnson Heade’s 19th-century series of hummingbird and habitat paintings, "The Gems Of Brazil," and their unique relationship to the epic landscapes of Hudson River School artists Thomas Cole and Frederic Church, as well as their continued significance to major contemporary artists working today. The exhibition was created by The Olana Partnership at Olana State Historic Site, Thomas Cole National Historic Site, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas. The exhibition tour is organized by Crystal Bridges. Photo of Thomas Cole National Historic Site by Escape Brooklyn. Photo of Olana State Historic Site © Peter Aaron/OTTO.
