Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

In Concert: Photography and the Violin

January 21 – May 14, 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.

In/Humanity: Combat and War in Art

January 21 – May 14, 2023

War and combat are inextricably part of the human experience, and art helps us make sense of the ways such conflict brings out the worst—and sometimes the best—in us. This exhibition, in conjunction with the WVU class “The Holocaust in East European Literature and Film,” brings together objects in the Art Museum’s collection for viewers to consider how creative expression in any medium helps us to both understand and reckon the violence of war and combat that permeates our world.
