The museum is the focal point of an amazing amount of first amendment energy as well with Witness: Art and CivilRights in the Sixties, another powerful collection of art and photos highlighting the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
Rounding out this energetic season is "Submerged Motherlands" by artist Swoon (Caledonia Dance Curry) addressing climate change. Swoon engages with climate change in the installation as a response to the catastrophic Hurricane Sandy that struck the Atlantic Coast in 2012, and Doggerland, a landmass that once connected Great Britain and Europe and that was destroyed by a tsunami 8,000 years ago.A towering tree and post apocalyptic sea craft dominate this fascinating exhibit.
