A Breath of Fresh Air: Nature Inspires Rarely Seen Works in the Taft Collection

February 17–May 19, 2024 | Sinton Gallery

With their colorful petals, rippling water, and cloudy skies, the artworks in this exhibition invite contemplation of the natural world. Immerse yourself in crisp seaside sunshine or among ancient ruins at twilight. Swim along with ducks in a leafy pond or stroll through a pocket-sized garden. Charles and Anna Taft acquired hundreds of exquisite yet modestly sized artworks to display in their home, now the Taft Museum of Art. The six paintings and five works of decorative art in A Breath of Fresh Air come from the museum’s collection, but due to limited space in the museum’s room-sized galleries, they rarely go on public view.


Admission is free for Taft members, guests of members with guest pass, military, and youth (17 and under); $15 for adults; $12 for seniors. Save on tickets when you buy online. Includes admission to special exhibitions and the museum’s collection galleries. Sundays and Mondays are FREE!
