Charles Ives studio exhibit to open in March

Posted on: February 25, 2014

A replica of the studio where Charles Ives worked the last 40 years of his life is to set to open to the public on March 6 at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City. In 2012, Charles Ives’s grandson, Charles Ives Tyler, donated the contents of the studio to the Academy for permanent exhibition. The studio—in Ives’s Redding, Connecticut home—had been largely untouched since Ives’s death in 1954 and includes the studio’s furnishings, photos, and keepsakes. These are installed in a replica of the studio in the Academy’s third-floor galleries, while an accompanying exhibition explores Ives’s life and work in Redding. The studio will be open during the Academy’s annual exhibitions (March 6-April 12, May 22-June 15) and by appointment. The exhibit is free and open to the public. More information is available here
