Water Between Us: Art and the Campus Read


Location: Stewart Hall, Second Floor

This off-site exhibition explores themes related to the 2021-22 Campus Read common reading experience, The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú. It features several photographs of Mexico and its people from the 1930s by American photographer Paul Strand alongside a series of lithographs that look at borders, boundaries, and the social and political implications of mapping and identity co-created by visual artist Enrique Chagoya and poet Alberto Rios—all from the collection of the Art Museum of WVU.

True Colors: Picturing Identity

January 22—May 15, 2022

True Colors: Picturing Identity features selections from the New York collection of James Cottrell and Joseph Lovett exhibited for the very first time in West Virginia—including major works by Keith Haring, Deborah Kass, Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol, among others. Together with objects from the Art Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition considers how contemporary artists use the human figure in painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and photography to explore and express diverse aspects of both personal and collective identities.
