Press Release

From Sea To Shining Sea

For Release: January 27, 2005
College Station, TX -

The Museum at the George Bush Presidential Library will be one of twelve stops in the country for the contemporary American art exhibit From Sea to Shining Sea: A Reflection of America. The exhibit, which will be traveling for three years, features one hundred gorgeous American landscape paintings by fifty artists from across the country.

These realist and impressionist artists collaborated for two years to create these paintings that are inspired by the nation’s grand mountains, rugged coasts, subtle rural country sides and industrial and urban areas. Each artist chose two of their best works for the exhibit.

The Museum has also brought together copies of important environmental legislation passed during President Bush's administration from 1989-1993. This legislation exhibits President Bush’s vision for protecting the environment and the importance he placed on the good stewardship of our natural resources. Included is the Clean Air Act of 1990, the nation’s most significant air pollution legislation in history. Visitors will come away from the exhibit with a newfound appreciation of America’s beauty and the steps President Bush took to preserve it.

From Sea to Shining Sea: A Reflection of America will be on exhibit in the Ansary Gallery of American History from January 23 to March 20. The Museum at the George Bush Presidential Library hours are Monday – Saturday, 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from 12:00 until 5:00 p.m. Museum admission is $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for senior citizens 62+ and active retired military with ID, as well as groups of 20 or more with advance reservations. Children 6 and older are $2.00; TAMU and Blinn College students as well as children under 6 are free.
