  1. Creating an American Identity

    July 2, 2022, 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.

  2. The Open Window

    Armstrong Gallery

    In "De Pictura" (On Painting, 1435), Italian Renaissance theorist Leon Battista Alberti instructed painters to consider the frame of the painting as an open window. This treatise served as a defining concept for theories of painting, architecture, and moving pictures going forward. The works in this exhibition either follow or challenge the metaphor of Alberti’s window, but also provide an intellectual space in which we might consider how our own views are framed and with what perspective. This exhibition is pulled from the Museum's permanent collection.

  4. Yoko Ono: Mend Piece

    July 2, 2022, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
    @

    Eldredge Gallery

    You are invited to engage with the participatory exhibition, "Yoko Ono: Mend Piece" (Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York City version), from the Rennie Collection, Vancouver. Ono proposes communal mending as an act of healing. Participants are asked to mend shattered fragments of cups and saucers together using common household items: twine, glue, scissors, and tape. The resulting works are displayed on nearby shelves, evidence of the power of collective action. "Mend Piece" embraces the metaphor of the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, a technique of repairing broken or cracked pottery using brushstrokes of gold and silver, a philosophy that treats the breakage and repair as part of the object’s history - an important and precious detail, rather than something to disguise. This exhibition is organized by the American Federation of Arts (AFA). The presentation of Yoko Ono's "Mend Piece" is part of Art Room, an ongoing series of contemporary art installations organized by the AFA.

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.

    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 Springfield Art Museum, like any organization, is supported by a wide variety of staff roles. It takes everyone from security to custodial, curatorial to education, and development to administration to keep the Museum running smoothly. Regardless of job duties, everyone at the Museum works in some capacity alongside the permanent collection. Does this impact our relationship with the art objects on view? What connections with art have we made as we secure the building, manage contracts, coordinate facility repairs, and write grants? This exhibit seeks to answer these questions by highlighting the people who keep the Museum moving forward including staff, board, and committee members, as illustrated through a range of objects they’ve selected from the Museum’s collection. This exhibition is the first in a series ("Humanities") that seeks to connect disparate works in the Museum’s collection with a wide range of community members.
