The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design

July 1–Sept. 27, 2020

Few objects tell the history of modern design as eloquently as the chair. Aesthetics trends, the emergence of new technologies, ergonomics, and social and cultural developments are all reflected in the evolution of chair design. The Art of Seating is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, in collaboration with the Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Ph.D. Foundation and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.

Painting. View of an interior room. We see a simple style of drawing two human figures sitting on beds opposite each other. They are passing a piece of paper between them. The paper has colorful scribbles. Another person is lying down on the bed on the right.

Interior Monologues

Reflecting the country’s recent extended period of self-isolation due to the coronavirus, artworks in the show have been selected to suggest themes of isolation and/or enclosure. Visitors are invited to imagine themselves inside the artworks.

A Tale of Two Collections: Sharing Similarities and Celebrating Differences

July 1–Dec. 13, 2020

A Tale of Two Collections explores the surprising similarities and remarkable differences that can be found in the holdings of Texas A&M’s Stark and Forsyth galleries. How do artists from each collection tackle topics like evolving notions of family and parenthood? Capture iconic images of cowboys? Or depict lush landscapes that use pops of brilliant color to dazzle the eye?
