Exhibition Preview | Frank Stella Unbound: Literature and Printmaking

Featuring forty-one works from four major print series, the exhibition is the first to focus on the vital role that literature played in the artist’s groundbreaking explorations of the print medium.

Changing the Conversation: African Arts in a Global Context

This spring, the Museum seeks to broaden the discussion by bringing together works by African and European artists that engage viewers in intercultural conversations beyond the Africa-Europe binary of discovery, influence, or “Otherness.” Installed throughout the Museum’s galleries of European and medieval art, the works are meant to be viewed in dialogue with one another.
