Berman Museum is proud to announce our next temporary exhibition, Polished Portraits: The Bronzes of Germaine Berman. The public opening is set for Friday, December 1 at 10:00 AM and family fun activities will take place Saturday, December 2 from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. While serving in WWII, Germaine Berman watched helplessly as Allied and Axis governments destroyed valuable artworks, including bronze sculpture. After the war, Germaine was determined to preserve as many European bronzes as possible. Polished Portraits exhibits thirty-two pieces of Germaine’s personal bronze sculpture collection, with subjects ranging from Animalia to deities. In this gallery, visitors will learn the history of how bronze sculptures are made and view pieces from the greats, such as Rodin and Renoir. At the center of the exhibit is Germaine’s story, illustrating how her love for art and her determination to preserve it has given Anniston and the art world at large a lasting legacy. Please note: Parental Guidance Suggested. This exhibit contains examples of the nude form.
