One World Project: Art, Culture, and Architecture from Around the World

The 2024 theme of the One World Project is architecture. New London high schoolers were presented a series of iconic buildings from around the world and learned how each one reflects a society’s culture, environment, and history. Each student then selected one building to study in detail, and create a 3D model for exhibition in MMoA's Davis Gallery.

From Crisis to Color: Derrière le Miroir/Behind the Mirror

Mystic Museum of Art

This summer, MMoA continues its exploration of the theme of "Art in Common" by celebrating the visionary innovation of Galerie Maeght in Paris, putting original lithographs by Calder, Miró, Chagall, Matisse, Giacometti, and others into the hands of ordinary people. The Maeght Gallery's success in reviving and expanding the role of art in everyday life after the devastation of World War II placed it among the most influential international galleries of the modern era.

Magic Hour: Art between Waking and Dreams

This year, MMoA illuminates the theme of “Art in Common,” how art bridges differences of language, culture, time, and place. Magic Hour: Art between Waking and Dreams presents art that bridges our own, innermost unconscious to our waking selves. Featuring 22 works by Linden Frederick, complemented by founders of the Old Lyme and Mystic art colonies, this exhibition examines the boundary between thought and feeling, day and night, action and repose. Therein lies a liminal world of profound interest, both to the artists who paint and draw it, and to the writer who collects their work.
