Art at the Center: 75 Years of Walker Collections
Walker Art Center
Now through Dec. 31

In 2015, the Walker celebrated the 75th anniversary of its founding as a public art center dedicated to presenting and collecting the art of our times. Curated by the Walker’s executive director Olga Viso and guest curator Joan Rothfuss, the exhibition looks at 75 years of collecting at the Walker—a history distinguished not only by bold and often risk-taking choices but also acquisitions that have consistently breached the boundaries of media or disciplines. The exhibition foregrounds many of these prescient choices.

Brave New Workshop: "Lady and the Trump"
Brave New Workshop
Now though Nov. 5

The 2016 campaign for president is well underway, but so many unknowns remain – specifically what hilarious and ridiculous things will the party’s nominees say and do on the road to the White House?

No matter who the candidates are, no matter what they say, no matter who is elected, only one thing is for certain: everything WILL be satirized in our 2016 election show, “Lady and the Trump.”

A Different Way of Seeing
American Swedish Institute
Aug. 27 through Oct. 30

A Different Way of Seeing spans more than a century of distinctively Swedish art from 1877 to 1990, highlighting paintings, mixed media and additional works from artists including modernists Lena Cronqvist and Sven "X-et" Erixson. These and other artists paved the way for the groundswell of talent coming out of the Nordic region today. Many had studied in Paris and returned with new skills and avant-garde ideas that fired a commitment to renew Swedish art.  The exhibition is on loan from the acclaimed Sam and Ann Charters Collection of Swedish Art housed at the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, with support from Julie Hohman.
