New exhibit to open at Munson-Williams-Proctor

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A new exhibit is the first of its kind to come to the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.

One would normally have to go to Boston or New York City to see a collection like this, but starting Saturday, you can see it in Utica.

Seventy pieces celebrating the Golden Age of European Painting from 1600 to 1800 will be on display at the museum on Genesee Street. The collection was brought in from the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Ky. The director says it's an opportunity you won't to miss.

"This is such a rare opportunity to see some of the most important painters in the Western world," said Anna D. Ambrosio, director of the institute.

The collection will be on display until Sept. 14.
