Hayes Prize 2023: Reggie Burrows Hodges, Turning a Big Ship presents new work by Reggie Burrows Hodges, the inaugural recipient of the Bartlett H. Hayes, Jr. Prize. Centered on the motifs of the sloop and the sea captain, these compositions engage with and expand the tradition of maritime painting as Hodges contemplates the notion of turning a big ship—of marshalling collective will and labor to resist a powerful current.

Sea Change, conceived as a complement to Reggie Burrows Hodges’ new work, brings together selections from the Addison’s rich collection of seascapes, maritime art, and model ships to explore the ocean and its shores as spaces of labor, leisure, passage, and peril.

Free Association: New Acquisitions in Context occupies the entirety of the Addison’s second level, and demonstrates how recently acquired works complement the museum’s extant holdings and help us to see the collection in novel ways, drawing out new narratives, juxtapositions, and conversations across time and media.
