Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere

Drawing on the American Antiquarian Society’s unparalleled collection of prints and books, the exhibition, Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, will transform viewers’ understanding of the iconic colonial patriot. This in-depth examination of Revere’s many skills as a craftsman will help illustrate the entrepreneurial spirit of an early American artisan who stood at the intersection of social, economic, and political life during the formation of the new nation. Examples of rare prints will be shown alongside elegant silver tea services and everyday objects such as thimbles and period newspapers to reveal new facets behind this versatile artisan best known for his midnight ride. Major lenders to the exhibition of nearly 200 objects include: Massachusetts Historical Society, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Paul Revere Memorial Association, and the Worcester Art Museum. An illustrated catalog will accompany the exhibition, which is curated by AAS staff members Lauren B. Hewes, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Graphic Arts and Nan Wolverton, Director of Fellowships and Center for Historic American Visual Culture.
