Exhibition Tours / 5:45-6:15 and 6:30-7:00pm
You have not one, but two chances to check out two great exhibitions drawn from our permanent collection. Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, offers insights into Picturing Labor in Nineteenth-Century France, a fascinating view of how French artists reacted to major social changes, while Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art, discusses Polymorphic Sculpture: Leo Amino’s Experiments in Three Dimensions, an exciting look at the career of an innovative American sculptor. See one at 5:45pm and the other at 6:30pm!

Film: And Then They Came for Us / 7:30-8:30pm
In 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 leading to the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans—among them Ruth Asawa, whose work is on view in the American Gallery. Thousands of American citizens lost their homes, their businesses, and more due to hysteria and racism. Featuring rediscovered photos of the camps by renowned documentary photographer Dorothea Lange, the film brings history into the present, as it follows Japanese Americans speaking out against the current travel ban and other regressive immigration policies.This film is presented in collaboration with the Windows of Understanding public art project.
