Blue: Color and Concept

Saturday, January 18, 2014 - 12:00pm to Saturday, April 19, 2014 - 5:00pm

Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library

Libraries conventionally organize and classify collections according to author, title, and subjects as diverse as children’s literature, amateur photography, Harlem Renaissance poetry, and experimental film.  This exhibition reveals what can occur if alternative methods for navigating an archive are employed. “Blue: Color and Concept” tracks a single idea across the Beinecke’s holdings and over numerous fields in order to reveal a rich network of associations. The result is a unique cultural history of the color blue in nineteenth- and twentieth-century arts and letters.

Come enjoy this unique exhibition at the Beinecke Library from Saturday, January 18 through Friday, April 19.
