Museums are, by nature, collecting institutions, but most only have the capacity to publicly display about ten percent of their holdings at any particular time. This exhibition provides the opportunity to retrieve old favorites and new acquisitions from storage, as well as works that have rarely—or never—been on view. The show will also address some “behind the scenes” mechanics of day-to-day curatorial operations.
OCTOBER 23, 2021 - JULY 31, 2022
This exhibition, co-curated by Curator of American Art Jonathan Frederick Walz and Director of Education & Engagement Lucy Kacir, explores the evolution of the meaning and function of home through photography.

The curators hope to document this shift and encourage reflection on the lessons to carry forward.
