In the News: "UMMA's Spectacular 'General Wolfe' Exhibit the Don't-Miss Art Event This Year"

John Carlos Cantu of AnnArbor.com writes in a recent art review that the Clements Library's "Death of General Wolfe" painting by Benjamin West is "the single most significant public artwork in Washtenaw County, and among the most significant artworks in our state." This work of art, which usually hangs in the Great Room of the Clements Library, is now the centerpiece of an exhibit at the University of Michigan Museum of Art: "Benjamin West: General Wolfe and the Art of Empire."

For more information about current exhibits, see the Clements Library exhibits page. The Benjamin West exhibit will be open until January 13, 2012 at UMMA, along with "Discovering Eighteenth-Century British America: The William L. Clements Library Collection."
