This exhibition reveals artist Joseph Cornell's sense of wonder and illuminates his creative process. On view are such objects as his diaries; photographs; letters he received from some of the writers, artists, and actresses who inspired him; and a sampling of material he collected to use in his boxes and collages, including images from magazines and books, prints, maps, and artifacts.
