Winter is Good

January 21 – March 23, 2014

Inspired by Emily Dickinson’s poem "Winter is Good," this selection of works from the permanent collection celebrates the quiet charm and stark beauty of the season.

Winter is Good

Winter is good – his Hoar Delights
Italic flavor yield
To Intellects inebriate
With Summer, or the World –

Generic as a Quarry
And hearty – as a Rose –
Invited with Asperity
But welcome when he goes.

Emily Dickinson

Constance Fowler, [italics]The Big Snow (Waldo Hills)[/italics], 1930s
