Andy Warhol depicted the world with the volume turned up, challenging how we understand popular culture, politics, and consumer society. In Living Color examines how his use of color impacts both subject and viewer, creating a dialogue between Warhol and nineteen contemporary artists who all use color to shape how we understand images.

This exhibition is $10 for general public adults and free for members, youth ages 17 and younger, & college students with ID. Join today to see it free!

Left: Orly Genger

Orly Genger (b. New York, 1979) is known for creating massive, hand-knotted rope sculptures that stem from the traditions of knitting and crocheting, while also drawing inspiration from 20th century Modernist painting, Land Art, and Minimalism. Recently, Genger has been exploring the visual language of the rope installations on a smaller scale. Working with bronze, glass, stainless steel, and aluminum, the artist has conceived intricate tabletop sculptures that read as excerpts of the larger rope pieces. This exhibition will feature ten of Genger’s cast pieces made over the last two years, as well as two painted rope sculptures.

Popular among young readers, graphic novels are known for their comic format. They are generally described as “sequential art,” where a series of illustrations tell the story, but, unlike newspaper comics, they are the length of a novel and include narrative development. This exhibition features the work of Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Mark Crilley, Matt Holm, Raina Telgemeier, and Lincoln Peirce.
