Multicultural Art Exhibit


The Springfield Art Museum will open a new Multicultural Art Exhibit on February 2nd. KSMU's Kristian Kriner reports.

The Multicultural Exhibition will include art from African American, Hispanic and Asian artists from the 19th Century, and early 1920's and 30's to the 1970's and 80's.

The exhibition will have several different kinds of art such as pottery, articles of clothing, paintings, sculptures and print.

Dan Carver, Springfield Art Museum Educator, says this new exhibit will not only expose people to new pieces of art, but also the history behind the art.

"It gives them an opportunity to see the works of contemporary as well as past artists and cultures. And in doing so they can broaden their horizons and become more educated not only about the visual arts, but about the history that surrounds the artists that have the works we have on exhibit," Carver said.

All of the art selections are from the Permanent Collections of the Springfield Art Museum.

The Multicultural Art Exhibition will be in the Weisel, Kelly and Foyer Galleries from February 2nd to March 4th.

Admission is free.
