Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland April 8 – May 25 at the Central Library
For more than 150 years, Coney Island, a strip of sand at the mouth of New York Harbor, has occupied a singular place in the American imagination. From a beginning as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an amusement and entertainment mecca for the masses, to its struggle for renewal in recent decades, an extraordinary array of artists have viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience. The exhibition brings to life the excitement of Coney Island, showing how its magnetic world of attractions has become a touchstone for American mass culture and popular recreation.

Organized by Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO, and made available through NEH on the Road, a fully funded initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
