Upcoming and Ongoing

The Museum produces six to eight temporary exhibitions each year, in addition to its display of works from the permanent collection.


Comprised of nearly twenty works that make use of discarded materials, Tossed (May 26–December 10, 2023) explores themes of thrift, aesthetics, social / political commentary, and cultural reference.
