Unwind with us with a FREE family day that
highlights mentorship and the exhibition Each
One Teach One. Entertain
and engage your kids with sidewalk chalk drawing, artist-led tours
for families provided by artist Kern Bruce, special Spark!Lab
updates, and more! Love mentoring and want to be further engaged?
Talk with our community partners on upcoming opportunities.
Partner organizations for this event are Big
Brothers Big Sisters, Good Grief, Neighborhood House, Art in the
Atrium, and the Morris Museum.
In 1959, Harry Belafonte created a live recording from
Carnegie Hall that would remain on the charts for over three years.
This concert highlighted Belafonte’s sensitivity as an artist and
activist through his iconic performance of beloved works from many
cultures alongside his signature calypso works.
For the artists featured in this exhibition, sharing
their gifts with others is an inextricable part of their work and
One Teach One: Preserving Legacy in Perpetuity is
seated in our Main Gallery featuring the work of over thirty artists
who have taken part in the meaningful exchange of wisdom, ideas,
process, career, culture, and more.
Support for this exhibition is provided by M&T Bank
and the Joseph Robert Foundation.
Summer Break: June 29-July 4
Excite your mind with Spark!Lab, whether it be a long
weekend or a family day. For essential summer
maintenance the Spark!Lab will be closed June 29-July 4. It will
reopen on Wednesday, July 5.
Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by
leadership support from BASF. Generous support is also made possible by
Gay H. Osborn on behalf of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.
Sand and Sea
On View through July 9
Sea brings together objects from the Morris Museum’s
collection to explore the beach vacation phenomenon. From bathing suit
fashions and souvenirs to the art that captures our imaginations and
transports us to the seaside, the history of the beach vacation
Real and Imagined Engineered Worlds
On View through August 27
explores the ways in which the artist, Jack Rosenfarb, combines both
found and created elements to prompt thought-provoking reactions in the
real and imagined worlds. His creations demonstrate both a bit of wry
wit and fanciful unreality. Now structures and other objects acquire
personality and perhaps a sense of humor as they stretch conventional rules
of gravity and laws of physics.
Leadership support for this exhibition is provided by Will
and Mary Leland. Additional support is provided by The Martin Guitar
