Past Exhibitions

On June 1, 2013, we closed our galleries so that we can prepare for the fall 2014 opening of our renovated facility. As the completion of this renovation and expansion project nears, we are busy organizing a number of exciting exhibitions.

To learn more about the array of work our staff is producing as we approach the opening, we invite you to read Index, our multimedia magazine.
