The preposition “re” has a rich grammatical history dating back to its Latin origins, meaning “in reality” or “in fact.” Today, you’re most likely to see “re” on documents or emails, meaning “in regard to” and often interpreted as shorthand for “reply.”

The re:museum exhibition employs “re” for its multitude of meanings, using it as framing to showcase our permanent collection and the Museum itself. Through education-forward installations, re:museum sets out to promote a welcoming engagement with art and offer a peek behind the curtain at how our Museum operates.
2024 will see re:museum receive its biggest refresh yet. The artworks on view in re:museum pull from our Digital Learning Gallery, and this iteration includes a push broom painting by Ed Clark, Jennifer Coates’s open-face abstraction, PB & J, 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 an inside look at how we exhibit and preserve works of art.
The Digital Learning Gallery is accessible via our website. If you’d like to incorporate re:museum or the Digital Learning Gallery into your curriculum, please contact Curator of Education Dan Solberg (
