New Exhibitions at MUAM

Free and Open to All

Open now through December 12 are three new exhibitions:

Margaret Bourke-White: Photographs of U.S.S.R.

The Past is Present: Metalpoint Drawings by Dennis Angel

Art that Moves: The Intersection of Creativity and Innovation

Margaret Bourke-White: Photographs of U.S.S.R.
(Douglass Gallery) Margaret Bourke-White’s adventurous spirit led her to photographing various danger zones around the globe. Though her concern for politics and social justice was that of a global participant, her zealous photojournalism shows us a uniquely American spirit. In this exhibit, Soviet Russia is captured through Bourke-White’s lens as she documents the industrialization and political changes in the region, and how this represents an American sympathy for developing and war-torn nations.

The Past is Present: Metalpoint by Dennis Angel
(McKie Gallery) For the past 6 years, Dennis Angel has produced metal point drawings on paper, a meticulous process popular in 15th and 16th century Europe. This exhibition will include preparatory drawings paired with the finished metal point drawings, and several still-life installations used by the artist.

Art that Moves: The Intersection of Creativity and Innovation
(Farmer Gallery) This exhibition of kinetic works from the Art Museum’s permanent collection will explore the marriage of design and aesthetics with technology and innovative constructions popularized in the 20th century. Kinetics is developed in connection with the upcoming Year of Creativity and Innovation (2015-2016) initiative set forth by President Hodge. Art that Moves is an exhibition of works  that move ~ either powered by you, electricity or optical illusion. The majority of the works are from our permenant collection with a few pieces by local artists.
