January 26 – April 28, 2024
An exhibition of recent woodblock prints and mixed-media portraits from the Arkansas-born, Baltimore-based painter and printmaker. In her practice, LaToya M. Hobbs explores Black womanhood, family, labor, self-care, and the rich traditions of printmaking while pushing the medium’s boundaries. On its debut loan from the Baltimore Museum of Art, you will have a chance to view Hobbs’s monumental work Carving Out Time (2020–21) which anchors the exhibition and is only the second complete installation of the masterful carved cherrywood panels.
January 26 – April 28, 2024
This exhibition will be the first comprehensive survey of paintings and works on paper created in the American South between 1913 and 1955 that reflect a period of change and upheaval across the region. Organized by the Mint Museum in collaboration with the Georgia Museum of Art, the exhibition will be on view in the Frist’s Ingram Gallery. The exhibition features more than one hundred works by artists such as Carroll Cloar, Aaron Douglas, Caroline Durieux, Will Henry Stevens, and Alma Thomas.
August 11-July 28, 2024
This installation showcases the beauty of African American people, culture, and history. Inspired by artist Sicasso, she encourages those who witness her work to immerse themselves in dreamscape spaces. The installation, located in the Grand Lobby elevator on the east end of the building, features five vinyl prints of Sicasso’s art. Guests will be taken on a visual journey through African American figures of power, resilience, and grace, based in a retro-futuristic world.
August 25-April 1, 2024
This exhibition features works by more than eighty adult artists with disabilities who are served by five social service agencies in Middle Tennessee. Guided by teaching artists, groups at AbleVoices; Borderless Arts; Friends Life Community; Healing Arts Project, Inc.; and Metro Parks disABILITIES made individual and collaborative works of art. These creations were inspired by the notion of resilience—the ability to withstand, adjust to, or recover from life’s difficulties, often by overcoming fear, isolation, and insecurity. By focusing on the artists’ unique abilities and boundless creativity, The Power of Resilience promotes growth, healing, and empathy among all people.
October 20-January 28, 2024
Drawn from the collection of Spanish colonial art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), this exhibition underscores the generative power of Spanish America and its central position as a global crossroads. The exhibition includes various mediums from paintings and sculptures to decorative arts.
