Arts & Entertainment / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

Sept. 1, 2015 – May 7, 2016 Highlighting works from the NEHMA Collection, this exhibition explores how artists in the American West have employed the use of abstraction and symbolism over the past century and specifically how this region has provided inspiration for their creative output. Complementing the Abstraction and the Dreaming exhibition, Transcendence highlights art made by both European descendants who came to the America West and art created by those indigenous to the area.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm    A Matter of Taste: Art, Kitsch, and Culture

Arts & Entertainment / Other

Jan. 23 – May 7, 2016 "A Matter of Taste" explores the complex relationship between art, kitsch, and culture. While a gift shop may seem the more likely place to find kitsch in a museum, "A Matter of Taste" turns this expectation upside down. Showcasing a wide range of kitsch, kitsch-like, or kitsch-inspired objects dating to the 20th and 21st centuries, this exhibition reveals the permeable and porous boundaries between fine art, kitsch, and popular culture.

Special Event / Access & Diversity Center

Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go to benefit CAPSA (Citizens Against Physical and Sexual Abuse). Doors open at 7:00pm
