Nosferatu

F.W. Murnau’s 1922 “Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror” remains one of the most beautiful and haunting vampire films of all time. Based on Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, the film was nearly lost following a lawsuit filed by the author’s widow. The film will be presented in the Peristyle with a live score by Detroit organist Stephen Warner. (95 minutes.)

Current Exhibitions

In Motion: Dance and Performance in Art

In_Motion_1200x630Through Jan. 3, 2016 | Works on Paper Gallery

Dancing is a powerful expression of movement and emotion. It can be part of celebration, formal performance, or even religion, and has always been a natural subject for art. Spontaneous or choreographed, private or public, always evolving and ever popular, dance has been a vehicle for artists to study the human body in motion, to lampoon human foibles, and to express joy or romance. These and other aspects of dance can be seen in this exhibition assembled mainly from the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art.

Degas and the Dance

The Dance Lesson

The Dance Lesson

Through Jan. 10, 2016 | Canaday Gallery

Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, on loan from the Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, Massachusetts, occupies center stage in this exhibition that revolves around Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas (1834-1917), one of France’s leading Impressionists. Originally modeled in wax in 1880-81, the 38-inch tall figure was cast in bronze in 1919-21 and depicts Marie van Goethem, a student in the Ballet School of the Paris Opéra. Other works by Degas on the subject of ballet, including bronze sculptures and paintings, will be shown. Among them are TMA’s bronze Study in Nude of Little Dancer Aged Fourteen and pastel The Dancers, as well as important works on loan from the Museé d’Orsay in Paris, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Gallery of Art and The Phillips Collection, both in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is presented in celebration of The Toledo Ballet’s 75th annual performance of “The Nutcracker” and will include a section of memorabilia and costumes from the ballet. Free admission. Degas and the Dance is sponsored in part by Welltower, Inc., Christie’s, and Taylor Cadillac. Additional funding for the exhibition is provided by members of the Toledo Museum of Art and through the sustainability grant program of the Ohio Arts Council.
