Sharing personal discoveries, challenging assumptions, probing identities, and shaping communities, artists engage their audiences with the contemporary world. Presenting exceptional works of art since 1970 from the collection, many on view for the first time, this exhibition highlights art’s purposes as tool for observation, inquiry, and learning in a liberal arts context. Selections include works by Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Glen Ligon, Chris Ofili, Nancy Spero, Andy Warhol, William Wegman, Cui Xiuwen, and many others.
