The Museum is reopening April 1
The museum is reopening on April 1
And it’s not an April Fool’s joke: we can’t wait to welcome you back!
The Currier Museum of Art will reopen to the public on Thursday, April 1. A new exhibition, The Body in Art: From the Spiritual to the Sensual, will explore the creative ways artists through the ages have used the human body as a means of expression. These meanings included religion, passion, joy, and a sense of our own mortality. The past year has reminded us that we are all fragile but share a great deal in common.
Also on view when we reopen is Critical Cartography: Larissa Fassler in Manchester. Our artist-in-residence used large-scale maps to capture the strange and sometimes humorous interactions in downtown Manchester.
Finally, the Currier Museum is also celebrating the art of Tomie dePaola, the great book illustrator who died a year ago this month. We formed a close bond with Tomie when we showed his work in 2018 during the exhibition Beyond Words, and this new exhibition of his original drawings launches a fund set up in his honor to support art education for young people
