Another Perspective: Interpretations of the Landscape

September 4–December 19, 2020

The wide, open skies and expansive prairies of the Great Plains inspire many artists to create varied interpretations of the natural world. Another Perspective features artists from the permanent collection who approach this subject matter from a unique vantage point and use abstract mark making, unconventional materials, and inventive compositions to depict the landscape.
