Featured Exhibits

Outside In/Inside Out - April 14 - June 9
Meaghan Schwelm is drawn to places and things that play with the notion of being outside or inside. Outside In/Inside Out explores the artist’s personal and evolving relationship with the natural world. Viewers are invited to interact with a felt story about “How Seeds Travel”. Children may also enter an open-frame play-fort built from sustainably-sourced timber, in which they are invited to play, imagine, and create. Schwelm’s drawings and juxtapositions of natural history materials with dollhouses invite visual interaction, as viewers engage in a seek-and-find.

Home Art Installation - Through September 30

The exhibit showcases artwork created by the students of the “Art Thinking” project team at Tohoku University of Art & Design (TUAD) in Japan.
