The Art of Food
From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

In its most prosaic sense, food is a physical necessity for survival, yet its overall significance transcends mere sustenance. Food is integral to our communities, relationships, cultures and languages. Organized thematically, this exhibition uses an artistic lens to examine food beyond its purpose as body fuel.

Magritte: Reflections of Another World
Paintings from the Van Parys Family

Magritte: Reflections of Another World comprises six paintings — five oils and one gouache — by Belgian artist René Magritte (1898-1967). Renowned for his witty Surrealist paintings of everyday objects in strange surroundings, Magritte preferred that his artworks remain mysterious and open to interpretation. These works are from the collection of Jean Van Parys, a collector of avant-garde art and a close friend of Magritte, and they are on a five-year loan to Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum from Van Parys’ daughter. The paintings have never previously been shown in North America, and none have exhibited publicly in over 48 years.
