Migration has an impact on both people and landscape. Presented in English and Spanish, Border Cantos, sheds light on the complexities of immigration and transforms these issues into resonant works of art, inviting us to bridge boundaries and initiate conversations. The artists created works of photography, sculpture, and sound that document and transform artifacts from the border. Misrach’s large-scale photographs, along with inventory-like grids of smaller photographs, highlight issues surrounding immigration and how they have affected regions and people. Responding to these photographs, Galindo fashioned sound-generating sculptures from items Misrach collected from the border, such as water bottles, Border Patrol “drag tires,” spent shotgun shells, ladders, and sections of the border wall itself.Chihuly: In the Gallery and In the Forest June 3 to November 13, 2017. $10.00

This major retrospective will focus on three phases of Davis’s work: From 1927 to 1937, in which he applied the forms of Cubism to still-lifes and landscapes; from 1938 to 1943, during which his work increased in both size and abstraction; and from 1944 to Davis’s death in 1964, in which he invented a new abstract language that merged the aesthetics of advertising and jazz with language, and an American-inspired subject matter.For more on the museum's exhibitions, visit their website here.
