Voices: Women Artists in the Era of Second Wave Feminism

August 9, 2022 – December 16, 2023

The fight for suffrage propelled the first wave feminism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. During the 1960s and 1970s a new generation of women took up the cause of equality. Their demands centered on reproductive rights and passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Works by women artists in the museum’s collection give insights into the voices in the era of this second wave of feminism. Among the artists are Lee Krasner, Louise Nevelson, Jenny Holzer, and Shirley Smith. Image: Alice Baber, The Golden River, 1974, watercolor on paper, 30 1/2 x 22 1/4 in., 2017.562

Do You See What I See?

September 6, 2022 – May 27, 2023

Disagreements happen when one person thinks an iconic object must mean or represent one thing but others have different ideas. This exhibition presents artworks that ask viewers to have second, third thoughts about what they know of a familiar object or person and to engage in dialogue with others. Encounter art depicting the American flag, commemorative stamps, a giant ear, and more, and think anew.
