Twin Peeks: Scenes Seen Twice, Paintings & Photographs
(March 5 - August 1, 2021)
Art Museum, Main Gallery
Chosen entirely from LIM’s art collection, Twin Peeks will present side-by-side views of nearly 60 paintings, from the 1830s to the present, placed beside photographs of the same or similar locations and buildings. Primarily drawn from Long Island or New York City artists and locations, this project has been an adventure in discovery and documentation for LIM’s Art Collection. Artists did not leave behind GPS coordinates, titles can leave vague and uneven clues, and the Museum has only recently attempted to more carefully track the locations of places represented in their collection.
