Rugged Impressionism
The Masterful Field Studies of Carl Rungius

Through October 7, 2012

Looking in-depth at the strengths of the Museum’s collection, examining Carl Rungius’s landscape studies provides visitors with a rare view of the artwork this master created while out in the wilderness.This exhibit shows how Rungius used his field sketches when creating finished large-scale works in his studio. Complemented by finished paintings from his peak period, this exhibit gives visitors a chance to see an important but relatively overlooked aspect of his oeuvre. 
Running Wild
A Video Installation by Sam Easterson

Through April 28, 2013
Sam Easterson’s innovative work lets viewers see the world from an animal’s perspective, by making videos shot from cameras mounted on creatures ranging from bison to alligators. Easterson says, “I just can’t resist trying to empathize with animals and plants. I think that in the process of attempting to learn what it’s like to be an animal or plant, I learn more about what it means to be human.”
