This photographic exhibition celebrates The Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio's acceptance into The Historic Artists' Homes and Studios Program (HAHS) of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
With more than 30 member museums across the country, HAHS is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the places where art was made. In this exhibition, over 50 photographs will honor the amazing creative spaces of American artists whose studios have become part of HAHS, including Thomas and Mary Nimmo Moran.

Detailing Moran’s adventurous participation in the Hayden Expedition to Wyoming, this enlightening collection of watercolors, sketchbook pages, oil paintings and even his expedition pistol, form the core of what will be an illustrated story of this journey and the national legacy of Thomas Moran. The largest portion of this exhibit is material that is returning to The Studio after being gifted to Yellowstone National Park in the 1940s.
We will supplement this rare loan from the National Park Service with period maps, stereographic cards, wood engravings, photographs and important, late 19th century publications that support this story of Thomas Moran, the founder of East Hampton’s artists’ colony.
