    The biennial "Four by Four 2020: Midwest Invitational Exhibition" recognizes artists working in all media who reside in the four-state region of Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. The exhibit features work by four artists – one from each state – who each exhibit a body of work. This year's artists include Crystal Z. Campbell (Oklahoma), Rebecca Drolen (Arkansas), Rebecca Hackemann (Kansas), and Glyneisha Johnson (Missouri). A special juror of awards is tasked with designating a $3,000 cash prize to one artist for their body of work. This year's juror of awards is Maryamsadat Amirvaghefi, Assistant Director of Exhibitions at the University of Arkansas - Fayetteville. "4x4 2020: Midwest Invitational Exhibition" is being held in 2021 due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020.

  2. Afloat: Artists and Rivers

    March 21, 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.

  3. Creating an American Identity

    March 21, 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.

  4. the interference structure provides

    March 21, 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.
