The re:museum exhibition continues to evolve and re:fresh, with updated artworks and informational displays.
re:museum centers the Museum and our permanent collection by exhibiting a combination of artworks, educational prompts, and other incisive displays. The artworks on view in re:museum pull from our Digital Learning Gallery, including prints from Romare Bearden’s Odysseus Suite, a pair of handcrafted theatrical masks from Noh drama master Atsuyoshi Asano, and much more. Each item on view in re:museum includes contextual background information, contemplative prompts, and activities for a variety of ages and art experience levels.
In addition to the artwork on display, re:museum also features insights into our institutional history and a peek behind the curtain on how we exhibit and preserve works of art. What are different ways artwork can be framed? How do you catalog artwork in the collection? What was the Museum like when it first opened? Answers to these questions and more can be found throughout the exhibition.
The Digital Learning Gallery is accessible via our website. Find it on our homepage by scrolling to the button labeled “Digital Learning Gallery.” If you’d like to incorporate re:museum or the Digital Learning Gallery into your curriculum, please contact Education Coordinator Dan Solberg (email@example.com).
