Bits and Pieces Make a Whole

Bits and Pieces Make a Whole

June 13 - August 29, 2022

We inherit many things from those we grow up amongst–from physical looks to meaningful objects passed down from generation to generation. But beyond these tangible inheritances are more intangible ones. During our formative years we also absorb certain traits, beliefs, or narratives from those around us. However, these things do not determine who we become. What we do with these inheritances remains in our hands. Bits and Pieces Make a Whole is a bold exploration of the act of repurposing our past and reimagining our future.

Viewing Art in Person

There’s really nothing like viewing art in person. As we traverse the remainder of our struggles against SARS-CoVid-2 (CoVid-19) and you’re looking for a lower-risk outing, please consider visiting one of our currently open galleries to view artwork in person. We remain vigilant and are working hard to make this a safe experience for you and for our staff.

#NWAJuneteenth 2021 Exhibition

#NWAJuneteenth is a virtual gallery of video exhibitions by local and regional Black artists who continue to work for freedom in America. Several of them have answered the question, “what does Juneteenth mean to me?” It is great to hear what they know, and we can find familiarity in their experiences. Their answers are much like that of other American Black families.

Importantly, the artwork attests to the role of artists in building strength in community and culture.
