Exhibit: “Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere,” Worcester Art Museum
February 15 - June 7
Drawing on the American Antiquarian Society’s unparalleled collection of prints and books, the exhibition, Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, will transform viewers’ understanding of this 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.” Click here to learn more!

The Concord Museum’s exhibit centers on the themes: “Revolutionary Revere” and “Revere the Legend,” and the Worcester Art Museum focuses on “Revere the Maker” and “Revere’s Network.” Visitors who purchase admissions at one museum will receive a voucher to visit the complementary exhibit.
