Juried by Aron Packer, the 2018 Rockford Midwestern is the 75th presentation of the museum’s survey exhibition of new work by contemporary artists from across the Midwest. Packer selected 68 photographs, paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and more by 69 artists. Best of Show and two Juror’s Choice awards will be presented during the preview reception for museum members and exhibiting artists – as well as the 2018 Dean Alan Olson Purchase Award, to the artist whose work has been selected for inclusion in the Rockford Art Museum Permanent Collection.
CURRENT AND UPCOMING SHOWS
We come to expect a certain type of weather at certain times of the year. We anticipate and enjoy the change of seasons and get used to the particular climate of a place. But what happens when that climate changes? When weather is unpredictable? Unseasonable? Not what we expect? This exhibit of works by 14 artists explores the beauty and extremes of weather as we know it and in imagining what may come. May 25 (Friday) 6:30 pm – July 30 (Monday) 9:00 pm
