Thomas Nast: Unknown Works and American Icons
Macculloch Hall Historical Museum displays an important collection of rarely exhibited, virtually unknown works by the man whose art defined many of America’s most popular icons: Santa Claus, Uncle Sam, the Democratic Donkey and the Republican Elephant. Previously unpublished oil paintings and watercolors, rarely seen pencil sketches, pen and ink drawings, and original architectural elements from the artist’s home will be among the objects presented in this exhibition.
Macculloch Hall Historical Museum holds the largest collection of original works by Thomas Nast, which has expanded through donations and acquisitions since its last major exhibit of Nast material.
