Bawdy Bodies: Satires of Unruly Women Raucous physical humor and over-the-top visual comedy are foregrounded in this exhibition of British caricatures and satires made in the late 1700s. Featuring a selection of prints from Yale University’s Lewis Walpole Library, Bawdy Bodies offers a view into the manners of an era over two hundred years ago, revealing parallels between the eighteenth-century and today. On view February 2 – June 24, 2017 at the CU Art Museum.
Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. On view March 2 – July 15, 2017 at the CU Art Museum.
Thursday, March 2, 5-7 p.m. CU Art Museum
Join us for the opening celebration of Home: American Photography at the CU Art Museum.
What does home mean to you? We invite you to respond to that question while celebrating this exhibition of 20th century photography from our collection. The night’s activities include creatively responding to images and prompts in our FlexSpace gallery, taking “family” photos, and the culmination of our social media call for your photos of “home.” Experience Home and enjoy refreshments and an inspired playlist spun live by Radio 1190 KVCU.
