In the fall of 2021, Cheekwood will launch its latest innovative arts initiative focused on activating the mansion’s period rooms. Intended to enliven a historic environment, this program aims to create a complementary dialogue between the craftsmanship of the creative contemporary minds of today and the classical collections present within the Cheekwood mansion. The inaugural artist, Beth Katleman, will install her whimsical and satirical work offering a creative temporary shift in perspective on the museum’s permanent collection. Katleman derives her inspiration from eighteenth century Chippendale designs and traditional toile patterns to fabricate intricate installations made of porcelain.

Manhattan Memories: Soaring Towers and Park Visions of Jefferson Hayman and A.C. Webb

November 20, 2021 – January 16, 2022

Manhattan Memories: Soaring Towers and Park Visions of Jefferson Hayman and A.C. Webb explores how two artists, generations apart, are captivated by New York City. Hayman, an artist who lives just outside of the island, explores the themes of nostalgia, and memory in his photographs. His works incorporate vintage or handmade frames, making the works small mementos of Manhattan. His work will be presented alongside works from Cheekwood’s permanent collection of etchings, drawings and paintings of cityscapes by A.C. Webb.
