Supernatural America: The Paranormal in American Art

Implementation of a traveling exhibit examining the expression of supernatural and otherworldly ideas in American art.

The Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts (dba Minneapolis Institute of Art, or Mia) respectfully requests an exhibition implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support "Supernatural America: The Paranormal in American Art." This exhibition, its accompanying publication and public programs will broadly examine the centrality of otherworldly concerns and the spectral imagination to American artists. Featuring approximately 170 objects from well-known artists as well as those never before exhibited in museums, the exhibition has been developed with input from a broad advisory group, including artists, academics, and community members. Objects will include paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, Spiritualist material culture, and video. "Supenatural America" is organized by Mia and will be shown at the Toledo Museum of Art and Speed Art Museum before its finale and closing presentation at Mia.
