Creating Change: Political Art From the Permanent Collection

September 11 - October 30, 2016

Within the Museum’s Permanent Collection are works of art with political content that speak directly to the concerns of our society. This exhibition features artists who make work as a catalyst for dialogue. By addressing political, social and environmental issues, these works aim to effect change in communities and invite visitors to reexamine the world around them.
