The Power of Words Virtual Tour

What’s Covered

This thematic offering looks at five works in the Mint’s collection that include, or indeed center on, a word or text. And at the variety of ways words or text are used to amuse, provoke thought, or add power and impact to a piece. We use words to talk about art: richly textured, impressionistic, muted colors. Sometimes, however, words are part of the art.
