Ongoing Exhibitions & Programs




Each One Teach One

On View through August 27

For the artists featured in this exhibition, sharing their gifts with others is an inextricable part of their work and lives. Each 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

Sand and 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 unfolds.


Fanciful Visions:

Real and Imagined Engineered Worlds

On View through August 27

This exhibition 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 Charitable Foundation.
