When The Baker Museum at Artis—Naples reopens December 1, visitors will be privy to four new special exhibitions spread across the freshly renovated visual arts space. The first floor will house “Iconic Works from the Permanent Collection,” featuring 100 pieces that exemplify significant points in aesthetic movements and art history. “Monet to Matisse: French Masterworks from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens” will occupy the second floor and include more than 70 works by the world’s most influential Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters, such as Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoir, Henri Matisse, and Paul Cézanne. To accompany this show, the museum will also mount “Expressions: Matisse and Modern Art from the Permanent Collection,” which looks at important creators whose styles informed the rise of avant-garde art. Continue to the third floor to view “Looking at Words: A Poetry of Shape,” an overview of text and type in visual arts, or head outside to explore the main Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus at large and “Color Field,” a display of interactive sculptures.
