Personal letters from some of the most important artists of the 19th and 20th centuries are part of a display from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibits service here at the Nixon Library.  The exhibition provides a unique look into the lives of key artists, including Thomas Eakins, Frida Kahlo, Marcel Duchamp, Dale Chihuly and Andy Warhol, through handwritten letters to family members, friends and business associates.  “The personal letters featured in ‘More Than Words’ uncover new insights into the personalities and creative processes of some of America’s finest artists,” said Liza Kirwin, the exhibition’s curator and curator of manuscripts at the Archives of America Art. “In this age of modern technology, the works are designed to inspire us to communicate more thoughtfully and remind us to cherish handwritten, personal communications.”  Special Exhibition Gallery.
