The Ten Commandments of Renée Cox

Art on Hulfish 

The Ten Commandments of Renée Cox explores motherhood, liberation, isolation, self-realization, and joy through the four-decade career of Renée Cox. The artist works across a range of media, using her own body to celebrate Black womanhood, occupy multiple identities and realities, and deconstruct historical stereotypes.





Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee


MiKyoung Lee uses pipe cleaners, zip ties, and twist ties to create sculptures and two-dimensional works. Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee explores memories from the artist’s childhood and from later chapters of her life that she expresses through her textile art practice. Read more about her work here.

Support the Museum with a Tax-Deductible Gift


As construction moves forward toward the reopening of the Museum in spring 2025, we are working hard to ensure that art remains at the center of campus and community life. In this critical period as we prepare for the new facility while also operating our two downtown galleries, our resources are stressed as never before.   

Please make a gift today and help us deliver life-enriching experiences to our audiences.
