Spring 2020 Exhibitions
Friday, March 27, 2020
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is opening five new exhibitions on March 27, 2020. We're aware that many of our visitors are worried about large gatherings due to COVID-19. For everyone's safety and peace of mind, we have decided to postpone our reception on March 27th until further notice. We'll let you know when the event has been rescheduled.
Currently, we don't plan to close the museum. The five exhibitions will still be open for viewing from the 27th. To maximize resources the museum will be closed on Saturdays from now until April 12, until further notice. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.
Excerpts: Works from the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Collections
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art presents Almost Presidential, an exhibition of new work by five artists who examine the American political landscape from an unfamiliar angle. Featuring sculpture, drawing, photography, and video by Pio Abad, Deborah Aschheim, Cintia Segovia, and exhibition curators Marisa J. Futernick and Rebecca Sittler, Almost Presidential highlights artists whose previous bodies of work have challenged the visual and rhetorical representations of former presidents and their legacies. In the run-up to the 2020 U.S. Federal election, the exhibition looks at vice presidents and failed presidential candidates, investigating names forgotten to history, or reduced to one-liners or supporting roles outside the spotlight.
