Contact: (304) 529-2701

As part of its Fourth Tuesday Tour Series, the Huntington Museum of Art will present a free guided tour of the new exhibit titled The Visual Elements – Line Presented by Edward Tucker Architects, Inc. on Sept. 27, 2022, at 7 p.m. HMA docent Fred Almeida will conduct the tour, and refreshments will follow.

The exhibit, which is the first installment in a two-year series focusing on the building blocks of art, continues through Nov. 6, 2022. The Fourth Tuesday Tour Series at HMA offers a free guided tour or other special event on the fourth Tuesday of each month.

This exhibit focuses on one of the simplest and most versatile elements in any artist’s toolbox: line. A line is a literal or implied connection between points or, as poetically defined by artist Suzanne Caporael, “a point moving through space, trailing its history behind.”

“I’m excited to curate this series of exhibits to help our visitors conceptualize the elements of art and to display some diverse works from our permanent collection at the same time,” said John Farley, HMA Senior Curator / Exhibition Designer. “I hope that this series of exhibits will encourage viewers toward a goal of better understanding the ways in which artworks are made.”

This exhibit is presented by Edward Tucker Architects, Inc.
