Exhibition On Screen, a new series of cinematic art exhibitions from museums around the world, continues Tuesday, July 9, at 10 a.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., with a screening of “Munch 150.”

This year, all of Norway celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863-1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. There is enormous global interest in this new exhibition, not least as a result of one of his four "The Scream" paintings recently setting a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Munch as the man who painted "The Scream," but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.

“Munch 150” is co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. Exhibition On Screen goes behind-the-scenes to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together, as well as touring Norway to provide an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation on World War II. Norwegian and international guests offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow.

Tickets are $15, $10 for students; Farnsworth Art Museum members receive a $2.50 discount. In October, the series will go to the National Gallery in London for a unique perspective on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer.
