The idea of a shelter can be anything from a physical enclosure to emotional security. Sometimes shelter is a state of mind in which one feels safe and protected. Sometimes shelter is simply a physical structure that leads to that state of mind. Shelter brings together diverse works from the Museum’s permanent collection that touch on those concepts in some way. Some of them are serious and poignant; others are more whimsical. All of these artworks point to the fact that art, as an outlet for personal expression, is itself a form of shelter for many artists. The exhibition will include works by artists including Virginia Beth Shields, Hollis Sigler, Suzanne Camp Crosby, and many others.
