The Day After Tomorrow: Art in Response to Turmoil and Hope

Exhibition

Our new reality is profoundly different than it was six months ago. Curated amid pandemic and protests, "The Day After Tomorrow: Art in Response to Turmoil and Hope" explores how artists respond to crisis, offering parallels to our own emotions and experiences this year.

"The Day After Tomorrow" is divided into three themes. "A Better Tomorrow" focuses on transcendence, alternate realities, the divine, afterlife, and bliss. "A Worse Yesterday" comprises works of art that address events that have shaken the world and thrown it into crises such as world wars, nuclear proliferation, AIDS, genocide, racism, and immigration. "Awry Ecosystem" focuses on art by artists concerned with the environment and how humans are changing it.

Also included is a Community Response Space, which will feature rotating exhibitions of work by local artists and where you can share your personal journey through an interactive display.

African American Art, Social Justice, and Identity: Works by Black Artists from the NEHMA Collection

Exhibition

"African American Art, Social Justice and Identity" addresses Black identity in the United States through works of art by ten African American artists and ephemera from collectives including the Black Panthers, spanning 1887-1989.

Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction

Exhibition

During the 20th century, art made by women was often overlooked or dismissed by museums, collectors, and art historians. Featuring work by 46 artists, "Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction" attempts to present a more holistic and complex view of art history—one that highlights artwork by women pushing beyond societal expectations and creative limitations through Surrealism and abstraction. Also featured alongside the art are 16 poems written by women in the Cache Valley literary community.
