Artis—Naples, Hayes Hall Galleries (The Baker Museum)

5833 Pelican Bay Blvd., Naples, FL 34108 - United States



Smithsonian Affiliate Museum

Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum is one of the foremost fine art museums in Southwest Florida.
The museum hosts traveling exhibitions to complement installations drawn from its permanent
collection of more than 4,000 objects. Artis—Naples’ visual arts emphasis dates back to the founding of its Pelican Bay cultural campus in 1989 with the Hayes Hall galleries.

The Baker Museum proper will remain closed for the 2018-19 season while we repair and expand. In the meantime, exhibitions will be featured in the Hayes Hall Galleries and on the grounds of the Kimberley K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus.


Intermission: Art and Music from the Permanent Collection
This exhibition draws on The Baker Museum’s deep connection with music in visual art, whether fashioned through direct representation or metaphor. Selected works from the permanent collection explores the representation of music through an in-depth look at a group of paintings, sculptures, prints and objects by 20th-century artists, and shows a wide range of approaches to the metaphors for love; religious devotion; harmony; the passage of time; death and immortality — all themes of significance in music and the visual arts.

Artis—Encounters: Highlights from the Permanent Collection
Artis—Encounters features a selection of works from The Baker Museum’s permanent collection by American, European and Mexican artists. Selected for their aesthetic, stylistic and thematic attributes, this group of paintings and sculptures acquires new meaning in the context of Hayes Hall, and in the company of this fall’s new exhibitions, as well as sculptures on the grounds of the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus. This exhibition is organized by Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum.
