Please note—Schedule Change

Our fall museum exhibitions will close two weeks earlier than previously announced in order to accommodate an intensive period of physical reconfiguration and installation for the winter exhibition The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China. The early closure impacts the exhibitions Samson Young: Silver Moon or Golden Star, Which Will You Buy of Me?, Meleko Mokgosi: Bread, Butter, and Power, and Down Time: On the Art of Retreat—all three shows will now close at the end of the day on Sunday, December 15, 2019.
