Abstract:
To commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of its opening, the Museum will present an exhibition of fort-five seventeenth-century Dutch paintings from its collection. This collection is considered one of the finest in the United States and will be paired with approximately thirty etchings and copper plates by Rembrandt lent from the collection of Robert Lee Humber. The history of Dutch art in the seventeenth century is discussed in depth and is unlike art from other European countries during the seventeenth century. The Dutch art from the time period is characterized as being more human and natural, reflecting contemporary life.

Abstract:
An exhibition by draftsman and painter Rico Lebrun will be on display through November in the Twentieth Century Gallery. Lebrun has been little studied since his death in 1964, but a recent revival of interest in figurative art, religious content, and expressionist paint handling has brought him back to the spotlight. Lebrun’s work often featured themes such as man’s inhumanity and man’s sacrifice. The work and the artists are described in preview of the exhibition curated from the Museum's permanent collection.

Abstract:
The Museum recently acquired two antelope headpieces or Tji Wara of the Bamana people of Mali. These two pieces are among the best known types of African sculpture and are classic examples of African art. The headpieces would have been worn by performers in agricultural ceremonies. The male and female pairs like these appeared at hoeing and ground-clearing occasions and were worn by the hardest workers in honor of the mythical being Tji Wara who taught mankind the secret of agriculture.
