The Rosenbach Presents “American Voyager: Herman Melville at 200”

Philadelphia — The Rosenbach is proud to announce American Voyager: Herman Melville at 200, a new exhibition to commemorate the iconic author’s bicentennial. American Voyager opens at The Rosenbach on October 3, 2019.

Few American writers have achieved the cultural impact of Herman Melville, author of the eternal classic Moby-Dick, yet he died unrecognized by his contemporaries for his genius. This new exhibition will explore the life, work, and legacy of this iconic but under-read author.
