One of the most complete exhibitions of the work of George Caleb Bingham took place at the University of Missouri in April, 1910. Indeed, the only known previous showing of the Museum’s Portrait of James Madison Gordon was during this exhibit. Nearly a century later the Museum will present Exploration, Interpretation and the Works of George Caleb Bingham. Highlighting the iconic stature of Bingham’s work, the many ways his work can be approached, and our role as a teaching museum, Exploration, Interpretation and the Works of George Caleb Bingham uses signed panels prepared by senior students in the Department of Art History and Archaeology, guest curated by Kristin Schwain and staff of the Department of Art History and Archaeology, to examine 50th logoBingham’s context, significance and legacy. The exhibition is part of the celebration of both the Museum’s 50th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the University of Missouri-Columbia’s College of Arts and Science.
