Weisman Museum of Art Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Work in Progress Exhibit
On May 20, 2023, the Weisman Museum of Art opened the exhibition, Work in Progress: The Weisman Museum Collection at 30, to celebrate the museum’s 30th anniversary and showcase more than 500 pieces of art donated over the last three decades. The collection represents a broad range of artistic practices and features works by renowned artists such as Bas Jan Ader, Lita Albuquerque, Polly Apfelbaum, Charles Arnoldi, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Larry Bell, Tony Berlant, Deborah Butterfield, Mary Corse, Llyn Foulkes, Joe Goode, Tim Hawkinson, George Herms, Rebecca Horn, Mike Kelley, Edward and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, John McLaughlin, Ed Moses, Lee Mullican, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Alison Saar, Betye Saar, Julian Stanczak, and Brett Weston.
Work in Progress serves as a rare view into the museum’s collection care and offers visitors the opportunity to see many of the works managed by the Weisman Museum. The growing collection will be displayed throughout all three of the museum’s galleries, where visitors can view the exhibition in two parts—downstairs, where recent acquisitions and rotating highlights from the collection will be on view, and upstairs, where museum staff will actively photograph, catalog, and research works in the collection to make them more accessible to current and future audiences.
This exhibition is currently open to the public and will close July 30, 2023. For more information, visit the Work in Progress: The Weisman Museum Collection at 30 website.
