  1. Afloat: Artists and Rivers

    January 16, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Weisel Gallery

    Ozark rivers continue to serve as inspiration and respite for our community, and for our artists. This exhibition is pulled entirely from the Museum’s collection, (including Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton who voiced his support towards protecting his favorite rivers – the Current, the Buffalo, and the White,) and explores a wide range of river-based work from our local rivers and beyond, reflecting upon the importance of this resource as both a natural amenity and a source of artistic inspiration.

  2. Creating an American Identity

    January 16, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Musgrave Wing Galleries

    The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains over 10,000 objects in nearly all media. The works selected for this exhibition were chosen for their ability to reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans. There is no singular or fixed American identity. American art and history is shaped by multiple perspectives, stories, and experiences, and as such, this exhibition aims to present a multiplicity of views within the wider context of historical moments. The exhibition includes 75 works from as wide an array of artistic voices as possible within our current collection, including even more works by women, people of color, Native Americans, and LGBTQ+ communities. This exhibit includes major work by George Caleb Bingham, Asher B. Durand, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alison Saar, among many others.

  3. Eye to I: Self Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery

    January 16, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Eldredge, Spratlen, Armstrong, and Hartman Galleries

    This traveling exhibition draws from the National Portrait Gallery’s vast collection of self-portraits, exploring how American artists have chosen to portray themselves over the past two centuries. The exhibit includes a variety of styles and media ranging from tiny caricatures to wall-sized photographs, from colorful pastels and watercolors to dramatic paintings and time-based media. The exhibition features more than 75 works that span the art historical timeline from 1901 to today. This exhibition is curated by the National Portrait Gallery’s Chief Curator, Brandon Fortune.

    January 16, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Kelly Gallery

    This focus exhibition presents work by a group of loosely related artists from the 1960s and 1970s, including Michael Kidner, Garo Antreasian, and Gordon House, who were interested in the ways in which systemic structures could be applied to the process of art making. Highly analytical in nature, some of these artists, such as Michael Kidner, utilized early computers to devise programs of art-making to impose rigid structures upon the act and context of art-making. The resulting works often included grids, moiré patterns, and graph-like projections. This exhibition is pulled from the Museum’s permanent collection and includes work that has rarely been on view.

  42. Afloat: Artists and Rivers

    January 31, 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Weisel Gallery

    Ozark rivers continue to serve as inspiration and respite for our community, and for our artists. This exhibition is pulled entirely from the Museum’s collection, (including Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton who voiced his support towards protecting his favorite rivers – the Current, the Buffalo, and the White,) and explores a wide range of river-based work from our local rivers and beyond, reflecting upon the importance of this resource as both a natural amenity and a source of artistic inspiration.

  43. Creating an American Identity

    January 31, 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Musgrave Wing Galleries

    The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains over 10,000 objects in nearly all media. The works selected for this exhibition were chosen for their ability to reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans. There is no singular or fixed American identity. American art and history is shaped by multiple perspectives, stories, and experiences, and as such, this exhibition aims to present a multiplicity of views within the wider context of historical moments. The exhibition includes 75 works from as wide an array of artistic voices as possible within our current collection, including even more works by women, people of color, Native Americans, and LGBTQ+ communities. This exhibit includes major work by George Caleb Bingham, Asher B. Durand, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alison Saar, among many others.

    January 31, 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Kelly Gallery

    This focus exhibition presents work by a group of loosely related artists from the 1960s and 1970s, including Michael Kidner, Garo Antreasian, and Gordon House, who were interested in the ways in which systemic structures could be applied to the process of art making. Highly analytical in nature, some of these artists, such as Michael Kidner, utilized early computers to devise programs of art-making to impose rigid structures upon the act and context of art-making. The resulting works often included grids, moiré patterns, and graph-like projections. This exhibition is pulled from the Museum’s permanent collection and includes work that has rarely been on view.
