DIRGE: Reflections on [Life and] Death explores how contemporary artists use their individual practices to capture, react to, reflect on, and make sense of mortality. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, video, installation, drawing, and mixed media artworks by artists both living and deceased. Works range from reflections on one’s imminent death to expressions of grief, memory, and transcendence. Rather than a study of the forces that cause death, the exhibition investigates mortality to identify and reinforce the most powerful characteristics of life.

Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent is the first full-scale survey of more than thirty years of work by Corita Kent (1918-1986). A teacher at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and a civil rights, feminist, and anti-war activist, Corita, as she is commonly referred to, was one of the most popular American graphic artists of the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout her rich and varied career, she made thousands of posters, murals, and signature serigraphs that combine her passions for faith and politics.

Light from the sun takes 8.3 minutes to reach the Earth. Light from the stars of distant galaxies can travel for thousands of years before we see it. When we look up at the sky, we are looking back in time.

Everything All At Once features four Cleveland-based artists who make sense of the world through restructuring and assembling found materials. These common things—picked up, repainted, repaired, or completely transformed—navigate between the ordered space of the museum and the material jumble of the outside world.
