Between 1935 and 1943 the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project printed more than two million posters in 35,000 different designs to stir the public’s imagination.

This exhibit will feature a selection of original vintage National Park posters, supplemented by modern reproductions. Complementing the vintage national park posters, Open Studio provides an all ages art making space related to summer exhibits which encourages visitors to explore new materials and ideas.
Transformations: Wildlife in Inuit Art and CultureThrough May 5, 2024
Through cultural stories, Transformations seeks to explore Inuit history, values, and beliefs. The exhibit is comprised of works from the permanent collection and items on loan from private collections. The hope, as it is with all exhibits, is that visitors take away a deeper appreciation of the artwork and perhaps are introduced to something that they did not know before. Most importantly, we want to bring attention to the fact that today Inuit artists are producing powerful artworks that reference histories and that, at the same time, confront contemporary issues such as conservation and environmental concerns.See the Exhibit
