April 12 – June 1, 2014

This exhibition showcases works from the AKMA permanent collection that do not always make it out of the vault and onto the walls.  The focus is “portraits” and the display includes a variety of methods artists have used to capture their image or other peoples’ images.   Curator of the exhibition, Megan Benitz, states that “Sometimes you can tell that the artiest idealized the subject and made them look their best.  Some of them are a little bit more warts-and-all.  I think everyone can connect looking at another person.  It’s why it’s called ‘The Face of Things’.
