A Moment in Time: Works from the Permanent Collection

December 13, 2008- February 26, 2009

Perkins Gallery

As the world around us seems to continue to speed up, one of the advantages of art is that it gives us an opportunity to consider things on our time rather than as they rush by us. This exhibition of works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection provides many such opportunities. Included are paintings, prints, drawings and photographs, representations of scenes both real and imagined, that show how pausing the action for a moment affords us the best chance to consider all the possibilities around us.
