Plains Art Museum Hosts Stakeholder Meeting, “Conversation Pieces” Exhibition Reception Thursday

Plains Art Museum collects modern and contemporary art in a variety of styles and a diverse group of artists: European, Native American, and regional art to name a few.

With Conversation Pieces: Selections from our Permanent Collection in Dialogue, the museum acknowledges the diversity that exists within its collection by linking groups of artworks in conversation with each other.

The museum invites the public to celebrate the the Summer Exhibition reception at 7p.m. this Thursday with live music, food and drinks, and of course, great art. High Five will perform life acoustic, flamenco, and original music. Food will be catered by Concordia College.

Other featured exhibitions at the reception include Architecture for the Birds and Artview: Ochre Studios.

Conversation Pieces is a smaller installation than some previously done at the Plains, but it only means that the excellent quality is more concentrated.

“For this latest exhibition, Andy Maus, the Museum’s Director, and I, wanted to reveal artworks from our collection in an as accessible, educational, and engaging manner as possible,” says Tasha Kubesh, the Associate Curator of Collections and exhibitions at Plains Art Museum.

“The resulting installation pairs groups of artworks in conversation with one another, revealing the inherent qualities of artworks, movements and artists,” she continues.

Admission to the reception is $10 and free for museum members. Plains Art Museum is also hosting a museum stakeholder event from 6 -7 p.m. to discuss what the community can expect from the museum in the coming year. The stakeholder event is free and open to the public.
