It's All Black and White: Contemporary Art from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

August 27 – December 8, 2019

Opening Reception: Sunday, September 15, 2019, 4–6 p.m.

Artists turn to black and white to explore essential visual effects. These colors carry deep psychological meaning ranging from white's association with light and purity to black's connection to darkness and death. This exhibition looks at a fascinating array of contemporary art that delves into the eternal mysteries of black and white.
