Exhibitions in the McGee Gallery bring ideas and objects together in new ways, highlighting the breadth and depth of the Art Museum’s permanent collection:
In/Humanity: Combat and War in Art, an examination of how visual art can help us understand the human experience of conflict,
Encounters: Blanche Lazzell’s Justice Mural, exploring the creation of a major work by West Virginia native and noted American modern artist Blanche Lazzell originally made for the Monongalia County Courthouse in 1934,
and Printing the Picture, on view in the Deem Print Gallery.
The McGee Gallery rotates every fall and spring with new thematic exhibitions drawn from the Art Museum’s holdings of more than 4,000 objects in diverse mediums.
