Conversation Pieces: Selections from the Permanent Collection in Dialogue

June 29, 2017 - July 29, 2018 Jane L. Stern Gallery, General Exhibition


Plains Art Museum is home to over 4,000 diverse national, regional and local works of art. Art communicates ideas and feelings between artists and viewers, but art pieces are also often in dialogue with other works of art. These conversations develop from the intentions of the artist and the context from which artworks are made. What do artworks communicate? To explore this, we present to you Conversation Pieces: Selection from the Permanent Collection in Dialogue. Join the conversations around artistic ideas, cultural identity, expression, aesthetics, and more, as you engage with regional and national treasures from the permanent collection.
