Double play at the KMA

2.BarnesHome

Our current issue – themed “A Passion for Design” – features a glimpse into upcoming exhibitions at the Katonah Museum of Art.

Consider this a gentle reminder now to go check them out for yourself.

“A Home for Art: Edward Larrabee Barnes and the KMA” and “Chris Larson: The Katonah Relocation Project” will open March 29 and continue through June 28.

The Barnes exhibition is designed as an overview of the famed architect’s career, paying particular attention to the Westchester properties he designed (including his own Mount Kisco home and the museum itself). Featuring archival material from the Katonah Historical Society as well as photographs, drawings and blueprints from the Loeb Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the show will also include video interviews with those who knew Barnes and collaborated with him on the museum project.

“Chris Larson: The Katonah Relocation Project” finds the multimedia artist inspired by the strange-but-true tale of Katonah’s relocation in the late 19th century. As part of the work, Larson replicates Barnes’ home in the museum’s sculpture garden.

The museum is at 134 Jay St.
