Exhibit highlights Dove’s Geneva

Dove’s Geneva, a new exhibit mounted by the Geneva Historical Society, is for the first time examining landmark local buildings linked to members of the Dove family who were contractors going back three generations. Of special interest is the city’s changing appearance during the periods when artist Arthur Dove (1880-1946), a member of the fourth generation, lived there. Historic photographs contrast the Geneva of Arthur’s youth at the end of the 19th century with the 1930s when he returned to the city for several years. Find out where Dove, an internationally known modernist artist, and commonly regarded as one of the founders of modern art in America, lived and painted. The exhibit will reference some of the art works completed by Dove in Geneva.
