Reflect + Create: Where Art and History Intersect
May 7 - October 4, 2015

Artists, makers and creators from throughout the broader community have been creating new work inspired by items in the Museum collection. “Creating things is uniquely human,” says exhibit coordinator Johanna Fassbender. “It connects us to the world around us and is a form of storytelling. Objects in museum collections also inspire storytelling and can help us draw unexpected connections to contemporary issues and perspectives.” To that end, several objects and oral histories were chosen from the collection as the starting point for this exhibit; local artists, makers and creators are being inspired by these old things to create something new and original that explores their connections to our past, and present.
