Creating an American Identity
An exhibition of American Art pulled from the permanent collection ranging from the 18th century to the present day. These works reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans.
Survey of Ceramic Art
Southwest Missouri has a historically strong community of ceramicists. Ranging from the functional to the sculptural and experimental, these works represent not only a chronological cross-section of the collection but also a wide trajectory of the transition of clay from its more functional origins into a fully-fledged studio art movement.
