Public Free Day — Tues., July 17

Mario Reis, Nature Watercolors, Colorado (Colorado Rivers), river sediment on cotton cloth, 1992. From current Permanent Collection exhibition Convolutions.

This Public Free Day will be your chance to EXPERIENCE the newly opened Scott Johnson and James Turrell exhibitions in the second-floor galleries. Last Free Day, the upstairs galleries were closed for the installation, but now the whole museum is open again! From western horses to anniversary murals, skeleton figures to beeswax sculpture, summer at the FAC has a little something for everyone!

With the whole museum open, the exhibition possibilites are practically endless! Raiding the Crates is an ongoing permanent collection exhibition series intended to follow exciting grooves in the collection and spin new experiences with a spectrum of artists, ideas, styles, and media. Permanent collection works presented in Convolutions were chosen in response to the James Turrell and Scott Johnson exhibitions. Raiding the Crates: Convolutions includes art from the FAC's permanent collection, showcasing works by Monica Petty Aiello, Herbert Bayer, Larry Bell, Arthur Dove, Oskar Fischinger, Adam Fuss, Isamu Noguchi, Mario Reis, and Cady Wells.
