Yoav Horesh: Aftermath
January 24 – March 31, 2019 (closed March 8-17)
Reception, Thursday, January 24, 2019, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
From 2002–2005, Yoav Horesh photographed hundreds of sites in Israel of suicide bombings, months and even years after the destructive blasts. The apparent return to normalcy or the abandonment of spaces reveals a society accustom to random violence on a massive scale. In an increasingly desensitized environment of war imagery, Horesh challenges us to think about the aftermath.

Messengers: Artists as Witnesses
Nine contemporary regional and national artists create work that gives voice to others, acting as witnesses by recounting significant events and personal narratives that go beyond media accounts and by doing so acting as harbingers for social change. Themes addressed include incarceration, criminality, state-sanctioned violence, terrorism and evil. Exhibiting artists include: Philip Brou, Daniel Heyman, Alix Lambert, Shaun Leonardo, Dan Mills, Cheryl Pope, Rudy Shepherd, Sheida Soleimani, and Stephen Tourlentes.

Dale Rogers: Seasons & Cardinal
On View in the Mills Courtyard
Mills courtyard pops with energy this fall with the installation of sculptor Dale Rogers' Seasons, a stand of four stylized steel and fused-glass trees. Designed specifically for the Museum of Art and custom fabricated in his Haverhill, Massachusetts studio, each of the trees has a unique and vivid glass pattern representing one of the New England seasons. This installation is supported by FEDCO Charitable Foundation.
A second sculpture, Cardinal, is installed on the corner of Pettee Brooke Road and Main Street on campus.
