This exhibition of photographs by contemporary artist Gregory Vershbow explores the interactions of art objects within environments and circumstances ordinarily beyond public view. In storage facilities and conservation laboratories, and at monuments under restoration, Vershbow photographs art objects wrapped in plastic, protected by foam, nested in boxes and set in surprising juxtapositions with other objects from different eras.

Saddle up as we explore equestrian artwork throughout the month of August! Design special silks for jockeys and race alongside the horses to hear the sounds their hooves make. Become inspired by stop-motion photography and build a stable of your very own. Neigh along with horses in our museum galleries and capture the grace of a pony in a portrait. Every Saturday and Sunday! No registration is required. Drop-in, make, and take a fantastic piece of art home with you!
