 50 Years/50 Artworks      

There are stories behind every picture you see in the Tweed Museum of Art. Some paintings are full of clues from the artist to help us understand them. Sometimes artists tell their stories in unusual ways.

The following stories take place in Egypt, in an artist's studio, in a garden, on Lake Superior, in the woods, in New Mexico, and even in a dream! What's going on in these works of art? What do YOU see? More...
