Diving Deeper: Color in Art, Color in Life

Primary colors have power, and artists often use this power in their works. Listen and watch as curator Danny Bills takes a closer look at a print in the exhibition by Roger Shimomura, recently acquired by the Museum Collector’s Circle. Shimomura’s prints are among the first artworks in the permanent collection by Japanese American artists. This print by Shimomura entwines complex global histories, with a powerful focal point created by color.

Diving Deeper: Let Me Show You This

The art in “Let Me Show You This” inspires us to think about how artists contribute to quality of life for all people through their creative efforts. Daily experiences are shaped by graphic design, music, architecture, art making, and more. The works on view in this exhibition are loaned from personal homes, where they contribute to the most familiar and personal of daily experience

Consider one aspect of the arts in your life. Without it, what would you miss most about it?

Using words or images, we invite you to share your story about what art means to you.   #wfmaartstories
