WAR TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip

JAN 28 – MAR 16, 2017

Children often share their experiences and emotions through indirect methods of communication, such as art and play. As a result, their personal accounts of war frequently go unseen and unheard by the international community. In WAR- TOYS: Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Strip, Brian McCarty’s photographic works interpret children’s drawings and offer a rare yet fascinating insight into the contemporary experiences of Palestinian and Israeli boys and girls.A program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of the Mid-America Arts Alliance and The National Endowment for the Arts.

JUN 1 – SEP 9, 2017

The 2017 Art of OUR CENTURY show calls for art relating to ideas of “movement” in all forms. Art movements, kinetic or social sculpture, video, physical fluidity, interactive design, and emotional instigators are just some examples of relevant entries. Showing alongside these works from the western region of the United States is spotlight artist Marcus Vincent. Vincent’s recent body of non-objective works are concerned with ideas around experiential color interaction, emotional relationships to musical harmony, and Zen gesture; improvisation is paramount.
