Because there is no generally agreed definition of what constitutes art, our newest exhibition aims to display different mediums in hopes to expand the viewer's idea of what art can be.

By combining pieces from the Museum's permanent collection with pieces from local artists, this museum-wide exhibit will explore how art can be found everywhere. From photography, portraits, and landscapes to jewelry, quilts, sculpture, and more, this show has something for everyone and will leave you thinking, "What IS art?"

Featured Artists:

+ Jennifer Callaway - Printmaking
+ Taylor Davidson - Portraits
+ Dallas Dodge - Sculpture and 2D
+ Jillian Marsh - Jewelry
+ Madison McBee - Interior Design
+ John D. Morrison - Photography
+ Belle Rausch - Graffiti
