In January 2021, the Art Museum will debut a dynamic exhibition in the McGee Gallery that explores the breadth and depth of the permanent collection by bringing ideas and objects together in new ways.
Visitors will experience the gallery in three distinct sections, including an installation dedicated to West Virginia native and noted American modern artist Blanche Lazzell. The two other sections will feature prints made by women artists and late 19th- and early 20th-century American landscapes.
After this inaugural presentation, the McGee Gallery will rotate every fall and spring, offering new ways of looking at the collection through thematic exhibits drawn from the museum’s holdings of more than 4,000 objects in diverse media.
