Florence Griswold part of Worldwide Exhibition On Screen Series


The fourth season of Exhibition on Screen, the series of art-museum documentaries shown in theatres worldwide, will include a film about Florence Griswold Museum’s recent exhibit The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement.

This is the first time Exhibition on Screen has focused on a Connecticut museum. Phil Grabsky of Exhibition on Screen said last season’s Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse was a hit, appealing to lovers of both art and gardening, and he wanted to explore that territory further.

Exhibition on Screen focuses on legendary museums and artists.
