Get your first look at this exhibition culled from our rich collection of contemporary art. This evening only, see the proto-psychedelic film Heaven and Earth Magic (1957–1962) by American avant-garde artist Harry Smith, on view in the Hall of Sculpture. Smith, known to many as the creator of the famous 1952 Anthology of American Folk Music, which influenced musicians like Bob Dylan, was also a highly original artist and filmmaker who made this major work by painstakingly animating cutouts from Victorian catalogues and magazines.
