The West As Home

The West As Home

Friday, July 23, 2021 - Saturday, January 22, 2022

The West is Wild, and yet the West is Home. The region that suggests wilderness also evokes warmth and comfort. This exhibition explores how artists portray the West as home. The word “home” can have many meanings. It can signify the land itself. Home can be a particular shelter. The interior space of a shelter with personal and shared objects can define home. Finally, home can be people, both family and the larger community.

In our current time dealing with a pandemic, many people spend more time at home. Reflecting on what the concept has meant for others can help us to refine what home means to us today.
