In the Galleries
June sees the closing of Being There: Bruce Jackson Photographs 1962-2012 in the East Gallery. Purchase the catalog accompanying the exhibition online or in The Museum Store. Also, follow Dr. Jackson's blog at www.BurchfieldPenney.org. Opening on June 15 is Disclosure: Women of the Burchfield Penney Collection in the Margaret L. Wendt and R. William Doolittle Galleries. The exhibition exposes the collision of society’s myths and norms against the issues and narratives defined by artists in the Burchfield Penney Collection, particularly in regard to motherhood, labor and beauty. Get new insights on the exhibitions on view with a docent-led tour of the Center, offered every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
