Making watercolors accessible for everyone

Mar 27, 2014

Bank of America is proud to sponsor John Singer Sargent: The Watercolors at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, on view from March 2 through May 26, 2014. Organized by the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this exhibition combines for the first time the two most significant institutional collections of watercolor paintings by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925).

The collection presents an amazing body of work that has never been explored in a focused exhibition. It offers an unprecedented opportunity to view more than 80 brilliant watercolors that Sargent produced between 1905 and 1911, when he was at the height of his artistic career and internationally recognized as the one of the greatest American painters of his time.

Bank of America provides support to thousands of arts and cultural organizations around the world. The bank’s commitment is based on the belief that a thriving arts and culture sector can better societies and economies. Beyond intrinsic beauty, arts and culture can spur urban renewal, attract new businesses, invigorate tourism and spark innovation. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is an important cultural, educational and community resource.

The bank’s long-standing partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is based on a shared commitment to making arts and culture accessible for everyone. This includes utilizing several Bank of America programs such as Museums on Us®, which provides the bank’s cardholders free admission, as well as loaning complete art exhibitions through Art in Our Communities®.

Bank of America hopes you are inspired by Sargent Watercolors to consider how art can transcend time and place to create meaningful human connections, and that you are able to share this special experience with family and friends.
