Poetic Journey offers Museum visitors a view of paintings by artists who painted American landscapes from the 1830s to the turn of the 20th century. The works reflect the changing view of a young America during a time of war, industry, and change. The Grey Collection compliments the Museum’s permanent collection of Hudson River School paintings.

The collection includes works from Thomas Cole, Sanford R. Gifford, George Innes, Worthington Wittredge, Samuel Coleman, and many more prominent artists. The wide range of artists gives viewers a taste of the changing attitudes of Americans around the 20th century.
