Henri Rousseau’s “The Dream”

Mon, September 02, 2013

Rousseau’s The Dream all came together Saturday, August 31st at Cotuit Center for the Arts. Ninety-six panels were lifted and hung on to a wooden grid. Applause echoed in the main gallery as Rousseau’s famous fantasy painting was finally revealed. My section #91 is on the bottom (outlined in red). David Kuehn, Executive Director beamed with pride—and breathed a sigh of relief! There’s a good video of his impromtu speech on YouTube.

Raffle tickets for individual panels are available throughout the duration of the exhibit. Proceeds will benefit both the Center and the participating artists. The exhibition runs through October 6th.
