Humanities, Vol. 2

Friday, February 10, 2023

What sparks a connection between you and a work of art? Is it color? Is it form? Is it story? What moves you to look longer? This exhibition began with these questions, and more specifically, directing these questions towards the Museum’s collection of over 10,000 objects. To seek answers to these questions, our curator invited three local artists in different disciplines – musician Jin J X, poet Kate Murr, and dancer Sarah Wilcoxon - to tour the Museum’s vaults and look at art together. Each artist has selected a group of objects from the collection and their selections are exhibited alongside new work each artist has created in their own medium in response to, and inspired by, the collection objects. This exhibition is the second in a series that seeks to connect disparate works in the Museum’s collection with a wide range of community members, facilitated and organized by our Curator of Art, Sarah Buhr.
