Helen Levitt
In the Street

For more than 70 years, Helen Levitt (1913-2009) used her camera to capture fresh and unstudied views of everyday life on the streets of New York City. Roaming through the Lower East Side, Spanish Harlem and other urban neighborhoods beginning in the mid-1930s, Levitt photographed the poignant and mundane aspects of daily existence in the city’s residential neighborhoods.

Magritte: Reflections of Another World
Paintings from the Van Parys Family

Magritte: Reflections of Another World comprises six paintings — five oils and one gouache — by Belgian artist René Magritte (1898-1967). Renowned for his witty Surrealist paintings of everyday objects in strange surroundings, Magritte preferred that his artworks remain mysterious and open to interpretation. These works are from the collection of Jean Van Parys, a collector of avant-garde art and a close friend of Magritte, and they are on a five-year loan to Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum from Van Parys’ daughter. The paintings have never previously been shown in North America, and none have exhibited publicly in over 48 years.

Image detail of artwork from the Another World Exhibition

Another World
The Transcendental Painting Group

Inspired by the ideas of artist and theorist Wassily Kandinsky, as well as by American painters Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley and Georgia O’Keeffe, the Transcendental Painting Group evoked sensuous, synesthetic experiences of nature and ideas, creating works that embodied a higher spiritual reality. Their manifesto was “to carry painting beyond the appearance of the physical world, through new concepts of space, color, light and design to imaginative realms that are idealistic and spiritual.” Their paintings were an important chapter in the history of modern painting and 20th-century American art.

Invisible Thread

Invisible Thread explores the works of contemporary artists who approach spirituality, transcendence and the subconscious through abstraction and metaphorical representation. These artists have continued in the lineages of the ancestors and artisans in generations before them as the transcribers of the mysteries within the universe while being bound together by the invisible thread in the shared channeling of their collective histories.

Baker Mansion Tour - 10/24/12

The Baker Museum is one of the foremost fine art museums in Southwest Florida. The museum hosts several traveling exhibitions annually to complement installations of work from its permanent collection. Comprising more than 4,000 objects, the museum's broad holdings of 20th-and 21st-century art reflect the generosity and commitment of area collectors. Of particular strength are The Baker Museum's collections of American and Mexican modern art and significant gifts from the personal collection of Olga Hirshhorn.

With more than two decades of collecting and exhibiting, the museum is dedicated to stewardship and scholarship from both its growing permanent collection and outside sources. At the same time, The Baker Museum seeks out the best traveling exhibitions from the leading arts institutions in the world, including recently the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Smithsonian Institutions, to enrich the Southwest Florida community.

In fall 2020, Artis—Naples celebrated the opening of an 18,000-square-foot expansion of The Baker Museum, designed by Weiss/Manfredi Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism, that created new spaces for multidisciplinary exploration and social interaction.

Exhibits

Helen Levitt: In the Street
For more than 70 years, Helen Levitt (1913-2009) used her camera to capture fresh and unstudied views of everyday life on the streets of New York City. Levitt's photographs, first in black and white and later in color, document neighborhood matriarchs planted on their front stoops, pedestrians negotiating New York's busy sidewalks and, perhaps most famously, boisterous children at play. On view September 7 through December 5, 2021

Subject Matters: Selections from the Permanent Collection
Drawn entirely from the permanent collection of The Baker Museum, this exhibition identifies subjects and themes that are common throughout the visual arts and explores how different artists approach them. The exhibition is divided into nine sections, each with its own specific theme: The Human Figure, Plants and Animals, Landscapes, (Sub)Urban Life, Still-Life, The Home, Artist and Studio, Narratives and Nonfigurative abstraction. On view September 7, 2021 through March 2, 2022

Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis.

The Baker Museum

The Baker Museum in Naples, FL, in 2020, after the completion of its 2018-2020 renovation and expansion project.

The Baker Museum (formerly the Naples Museum of Art) is part of Artis—Naples, a multidisciplinary organization that also is the home of the Naples Philharmonic, located at 5833 Pelican Bay Boulevard, Naples, Florida. The museum, opened in 2000, houses a diverse collection of art in a three-story, 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) facility.[1] The permanent collection includes works of American modernism, 20th-century Mexican art, sculpture and 3-dimensional art.[2] In addition to the permanent collection, the museum hosts traveling exhibits throughout the year.

The museum acquired the Ahmet Ertegun collection in 1999, which contains about 300 works of Modernist art from the 1910's through the 1960's. The collection has works by artists A. E. Gallatin, Morgan Russell, Marsden Hartley, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Thomas

Hart Benton, Helen Torr, and Stuart Davis.[3]

Programming[edit]

The Baker Museum hosts events including exhibition lectures, workshops, Art After Hours, and Artists' Studio Tour to celebrate the visual arts and lifelong learning. Every last Wednesday of the month from 6pm to 9pm, visitors to the museum for Art After Hours get free admission.[1]

Building[edit]

The Baker Museum closed for repairs in September 2017 due to water damage caused by Hurricane Irma. The museum reopened in December 2019 after two years of building repairs.[4] The museum is undergoing an expansion project set to be complete in Summer 2020 to add an additional 18,000 square feet, which will house objects from its collection, host events, and create social gathering spaces.[5] The expansion project was designed by Weiss/Manfredi.[6]
