Storywork: The Prints of Marie Watt

August 20 – December 11, 2022

Marie Watt (Seneca, b. 1967) is one of the country’s most celebrated contemporary artists, whose work draws on personal experience, indigenous traditions, proto-feminism, mythology, and art history. Drawing on the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his family foundation, Storywork  is a comprehensive look at Watt’s 30-year career, including more than 60 original prints and sculptural works. The exhibition also showcases Watt’s deep veneration for indigenous narratives, especially those informed by her own Seneca heritage.

In Concert: Photography and the Violin

Upcoming Spring 2023

For nearly the entire history of the medium, violins have appeared in photographs in ways that signify talent, status, geography, and culture – and have often been presented as beautiful objects unto themselves. This exhibition, featuring 250 original photographs, spans a period of more than 175 years from the 1840s to today, and includes examples of nearly every photographic process.

It’s better from the inside.
