AMARANTHINE MUSEUM
Treasure Hunt

The Amaranthine Museum has created an educational program to enhance the experience of visitors touring the 200 piece Labyrinth. Hidden treasures have been borrowed from selected paintings within the Labyrinth and embedded within a “Treasure Hunt”, inviting the museum visitors to investigate each painting in detail in search of the image. The player seeks the images then, by reading the detailed description of each piece from the guided tour, matches it with its correct title. Those successfully completing the “Hunt” will receive a prize. The end result has met with great enthusiasm as it deepens the visitors experience and lends a keen understanding into the artwork.

Sun Oct 20 & 27 12:30pm – 2:30pm

Amaranthine Museum – 2010 Clipper Park Road

No advance reservations required.

Free Exhibitions

MORRIS LOUIS UNVEILED Oct 1-31 (September 8, 2013 – February 9, 2014) This exhibition features 28 drawings and paintings that illuminate largely unknown aspects of Morris Louis’s artistic practice. The exhibition includes a recent gift of two large-scale paintings and numerous drawings from the estate of the artist's widow, as well as related works on paper by Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, and Jackson Pollock.

MATISSE’S MARGUERITE: MODEL DAUGHTER Oct 1-31 (September 18, 2013 – January 19, 2014) More than 40 prints, drawings, sculpture, and paintings of the artist’s daughter Marguerite offer a rare look at a more personal aspect of Henri Matisse’s life and work. Marguerite was a frequent model for her father, as well as a dedicated assistant and archivist. Over the course of 45 years, she is portrayed in many ways—from detailed sculptures and drawings to abstract prints—but always with recognizable features that reveal much about the artist and his affection for his daughter.

FRONT ROOM: AN-MY LÊ Oct 9-31 (October 9, 2013 – January 23, 2014) An-My Lê's powerful black-and-white and color images contemplate the consequences of war through quiet moments away from combat. This exhibition includes 21 photographs from four different series showing vast landscapes and seascapes with the American military carrying out training, surveillance, and peacekeeping and humanitarian missions throughout the world.

BLACK BOX: GERARD BYRNE Oct23-31 (October 23, 2013 – February 16, 2014) A film and several photographs from Gerard Byrne's on-going project Case Study: Loch Ness (Some possibilities and problems) investigate how society’s desire to believe in something otherworldly transforms the banal—branches, rock formations, mist on the water—into variations on the myth of the Loch Ness monster. Byrne infuses his work with wry humor as he probes how people see what they want to see rather than what is there.

THE BIG TABLE CONNECTIONS Sat Oct 5 2 - 4pm Connect to today's innovative art and artists, explore big ideas, and participate in creative activities. Conversations begin at 2 p.m., followed by drop-in art activities.

ARTIST TALK with AN-MY LÊ Sat Oct 12 (at MICA's Brown Center, Falvey Hall) 2 p.m. Photographer and MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" winner An-My Lê participates in a conversation with BMA Associate Curator Ann Shafer and the audience.
