Born on this day in 1882, N. C. Wyeth’s vibrant illustrations brought many beloved tales to life. This painting captures the dramatic moment in “The Odyssey of Homer” when the disguised Ulysses reveals himself to his wife’s suitors by effortlessly using his own bow, which others had tried but would only bend for him.
From the National Museum of Health and Medicine: “Take a look: NMHM is hosting a unique art show from artist J.J. Lendl: “The X-Files Poster Project.” Lendl’s posters capture the show’s unique tone, blending art, entertainment and science. The posters first debuted on 20th Century Fox’s official social media channels as part of the “201 Days of The X-Files” campaign celebrating the first nine X-Files seasons and promoting last winter’s 2016 season. Posters will be on display at NMHM through October. And “The X-Files” will be featured in this month’s #SciCafe with the show’s science advisor Prof. Anne Simon.”
Adiós, “Amor.” We’ve loved having Robert Indiana’s colorful sculpture atop our famous steps, but sadly, it’s time for us to say goodbye. Your last chance to see “Amor” at the Museum will be this Sunday.
