Whether your mission is to tell the story of your community, preserve a specific history, or is to share art and culture, there are new exhibitions in our roster to meet your needs.

Our newest offerings are listed below:

Art of the Wish

If you had a wish for the world, what would it be? Two artists traveled the country asking this question to elders from diverse backgrounds and locations. Inspired by more than 250 wishes, Art of the Wish is a poignant and memorable reflection of the beauty in generational storytelling.

Killing the Negative: Poetic Interventions

Intentionally damaged negatives from a WPA commission led artist Joel Daniel Phillips and poet Quraysh Ali Lansana into a multi-media project that explores complex intersections of representation, truth, and power. Adapted from a forthcoming exhibit at Philbrook Museum of Art, the artist and a group of noted American poets explore crucial concepts that are at the center of our contemporary society.

Politics of the Kitchen

This exhibition brings together artists working with a variety of photographic media who stir up new considerations that define the kitchen as something more than a place where food is cooked: the kitchen is an ideological space. Like a lively dinner conversation, this exhibition is centered around food, but expands into larger themes of labor, economics, family, nature, society, and culture.

Popol Vuh: The Sacred Book of the Quiche through Illustration

Around 1,000 A.D. in the present-day country of Guatemala, a highland Mayan people called the Quiche created in pictographic form a creation myth of the Universe in which a pair of Hero Twins must descend into the Underworld to save the next and final generation of humanity. Artist Jaime Arredondo has painstakingly brought it back to life by creating 65 illustrations of the story following it chronologically.

The Perfect Shot: Walter Iooss Jr. and the Art of Sports Photography

Over his long career, photographer Walter Iooss Jr. had the opportunity to work with some of the greatest athletes of the past sixty years, capturing on film carefully crafted moments of triumph and disappointment—universal emotions that athletes and non-athletes alike know so well.

The State of Water: Our Most Valuable Resource

Only 0.007 percent of the planet’s water is available to fuel and feed its eight billion people. Brad Temkin’s photography puts visitors face-to-face with the systems and techniques that deliver our most valuable natural resource. In doing so, the exhibition encourages us to see water conservation as a process we can all get involved in.

Tuned to the Spirit: Photographs from the Sacred Steel Community

Tuned to the Spirit offers an elegant, sensitive, and deeply respectful portrait of music-making and worship in African American faith communities that are set apart by their embrace of the electric steel guitar as a primary instrument of praise.

War Toys: Ukraine

Since 2011, internationally recognized photographer Brian McCarty has been collaborating with children who have been affected by conflict on a unique project titled War Toys, which is now active in and near Ukraine. The project invokes principles and practices of expressive art therapy to safely gather and articulate children’s accounts of warfare.
