Impulse: A Trip Inside

April 5, 2017 - Feb 24, 2019

Human beings have an innate need to create. Artists express their creative impulses through a variety of forms and media. Whether it is a Yoruba carver from Nigeria fashioning a wooden figure as a memorial to twins who have died, or Thad Mosley, a contemporary sculptor from Pittsburgh using those same carving techniques to create abstract modernist forms, both seek to visually communicate their thoughts and feelings with the world. 

The current exhibition draws from the range of the museum’s international collection to explore the hand-wrought creations of artists near and far, past and present, as the they respond to a creative instinct that compels them to convey their personal ideas, political agendas, and cultural meanings through art.

Support for this exhibition is generously provided by the Friends of the Art Museum.
