Last Chance for Bingham
One of the most popular and widely-viewed art exhibitions at Central Methodist University is about to end - but viewers can still catch it if they hurry.
Some of the most popular, as well as some of the most rarely seen, works of George Caleb Bingham will end their run soon at Central Methodist University's Ashby-Hodge Gallery of American Art at Central Methodist University.
The exhibition can be seen Sunday (Oct. 23), next Tuesday through Thursday (Oct. 25-27), then closes on Sunday, Oct. 30. The Ashby-Hodge Gallery is open from 1:30-4:30 p.m. on the lower level of Cupples Hall at CMU and admission is free, noted Curator of the Exhibition Joe Geist.
George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) was born in Virginia, and moved with his family to Franklin, Howard County, Missouri in 1819. He later lived in many places around the country and travelled extensively, but always returned to what is referred to as "The Boonslick" and found much inspiration there for his paintings.Founded in 1854, Central Methodist programs range from undergraduate and graduate studies to high-school dual credit offerings. Serving approximately 5,000 students on its historic main campus in Fayette, through collaborative programs at locations across Missouri, or online, the CMU mission emphasizes academic and professional excellence, ethical leadership, and social responsibility.
