Railroad art exhibit opens
Saturday, June 22, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Shelburne Museum presents All Aboard: The Railroad in American Art, 1840-1955, an exhibition exploring depictions of trains in American visual culture during the rapid industrialization and expansion of the 19th and 20th centuries. The exhibition will be on view through Oct. 20. All Aboard explores how the railroad fundamentally changed the fabric of American life, moving people and products between growing metropolitan centers along the East Coast of the United States as well as westward, toward the Pacific Ocean. Notable among the artists in the exhibition is Vermont’s own Charles Heyde (1822–1892) and his Steam Train in North Williston, Vermont, ca. 1856.
