Palmer Museum of Art
American Art in the Shadow of World War I
Through August 7, 2016
American Art in the Shadow of World War I surveys the museum’s holdings from the years leading up to, during, and immediately following the Great War. Whether part of the debate about U.S. intervention or as combatants themselves, for example, the conflict touched American artists in a variety of ways. This exhibition examines a diverse group of 18 photographs and works on paper against the backdrop of the war.
The Prints of Jules Heller
Through August 14, 2016
One of Jules Heller’s crowning achievements as founding dean of the College of Arts and Architecture was the role he played in 1967 as general chairman of the planning committee for the first Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. This retrospective exhibition, organized to mark the Arts Festivals 50th year, celebrates six decades of Heller’s printmaking efforts.
Still Moving: Photographs by Steve McCurry
Through September 18, 2016
Internationally acclaimed photographer and Penn State Alumnus Steve McCurry is often on the move. Best known for a haunting image of a refugee “Afghan Girl” that graced the cover of National Geographic in 1985, McCurry continues to cross the globe in search of “unguarded moments” in which the resilient human spirit is most evident, even in the face of war, forced migrations, and natural disasters. Still Moving explores the breadth of McCurry’s career.
Art by Vesco
Art Alley, First Floor
Through September 18, 2016
Art by Vesco is a collection of sculptural encaustic paintings by Joe Vescovich. Combining wood, metal, and photography with encaustic, a form of painting that utilizes melted wax, allows Vescovich to create these dynamic wall sculptures that are intended to be viewed from a variety of perspectives.
Through September 11, 2016
Kiana Honarmand’s mixed-media work focuses on issues related to her cultural identity, especially the treatment of women in Iran’s society, the male gaze, censorship, and surveillance. These are difficulties that everyone living in Iran, especially women, must deal with on a daily basis. She employs photography as a primary medium, but also includes sculpture, painting, and collage as a means to convey her ideas. She often uses modern technologies such as laser cutters, CNC routers, 3D scanners, and 3D printers in creating her work.
