Artists’ Portraits: Putting a Face to the Name: Over 30 photographic portraits of prominent Soviet artists from the Cold War era are featured in this illuminating exhibition. See the faces of artists who dared to speak out against Communist restrictions on freedom of expression.
Diane Burko: Glacial Perspectives: An immense fascination with extreme climates led artist Diane Burko on trips to the Arctic Circle and Antarctica. From these travels, she has amassed a number of photographs and paintings featuring these harsh, yet gorgeous, landscapes. This exhibition features a number of works from the venerable artist’s collection.
Maples in the Mist: Chinese Poems Illustrated for Children by Jean & Mou-sien Tseng: The museum’s website presents an apt description of this imaginative exhibition: “…twenty-two original watercolors by the Tsengs present aspects of China’s traditional customs and the splendor of its countryside. The Tang poems, which encouraged centuries of Chinese children as they learned to read, were translated into English by Minfong Ho.”
