Exhibit – 'Vault Show'
The University of Arizona Museum of Art collection is comprised of approximately 6,000 works that span many centuries and cultures.
Started in the 1970s, the UAMA "Vault Show" is a periodic exhibition that creates an opportunity to showcase the permanent collection, bringing out artworks from the vault that are thematically diverse and juxtaposing them with other pieces to create new and exciting dialogues. The works in this iteration of "Vault Show" depict a variety of subject matter from landscape, to spirituality, to pure abstraction – yet they are all linked through scale and demonstrate how size can impact one's experience with a work of art.
This exhibition is supported by the Jack and Vivian Hanson Endowment and was co-curated with Libby Bacal, the fall 2018 Edward and Nancy Strauss Intern.
