Now through June 26, 2020: Off the Rack: Building and Preserving LIM’s Art Treasures: The museum’s art collection, consisting of more than 500 paintings and 2,000 works on paper, is what makes it possible for it to offer a dynamic schedule of exhibitions each year. But much of this collection usually stays out of visitor’s sight, in carefully protected storage spaces. This exhibition allows us to push open the doors and empty our storage areas, to give visitors a rare chance to see some of the rare and outstanding highlights of LIM’s collection. Off the Rack will both highlight some of the outstanding new paintings that LIM has collected over the past 20 years – works from Jane Wilson, Jane Freilicher, David Burliuk, Robert Dash, and many more – and will examine the museum’s continuing efforts to care for its collection.

March 14 - July 5, 2020: Blue. What color means more to us than blue? Even among the primaries, the color of the sky and sea commands a privileged place, by far the most popular hue in the spectrum according to surveys on every continent. Blue casts its spell, pushing beyond symbolism to a deeper emotional level, drawing us into its pure and distant mysteries. We are turning the entire museum over to the multi-media exploration of blue in many incarnations. It spans history and geography, from the precious lapis lazuli of antiquity to paintings, photographs, sculpture, ceramics, cyanotypes, and fashion. As Miró said, “This is the color of my dreams.” GET DETAILS
