Through February 18, 2024

Trexler, Butz, and Goodman Galleries and Trexler Hall

Explore more than 150 works of American art—and their connections to both local and global artistic communities—through our recently redesigned American galleries. These galleries investigate how trade, colonization, and the migration of people and ideas have shaped our nation’s culture. Recent acquisitions, including contemporary art and works by African American, Latinx, Latin American, and Indigenous artists, play a key role in this narrative. This long-term exhibition also introduces regular rotations of works on paper and textiles, allowing our galleries to change and grow alongside our community.

The third rotation of the art in these galleries, on view through February 18, 2024, introduces fifty new works ranging from whimsical embroidered owls to contemporary works by Willie Cole and Wendy Red Star. Other highlights will include new selections of work by Keith Haring, Harry Bertoia, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. These rotations help protect light-sensitive works from damage while also making more of our collections available to our community.
