Exhibit: Decked Out

Each spring, a new theme emerges in The DAI’s Experiencenter, which was the nation’s first interactive, intergenerational museum gallery. This year, we will explore the art and culture of body adornment, jewelry, and costume.

Exhibit: Inspirations from the East
Jan 25 all-day

The late 19th and early 20th centuries witnessed an explosion of interest in all things Japanese that prompted a radical shift in modern art. Inspirations from the East illuminates the myriad ways that American and European artists responded to their new exposure to Japanese art and culture. It pairs the works with Japanese ukiyo-e prints, with their unusual points of view and asymmetrical compositions with decorative patterning and delicate colors—all of which made them a revelation to Western artists trained to order the world around them according to single-point perspective.

Family Shots
Jan 25 @ 2:00 pm – Feb 8 @ 4:00 pm

Charming family patriarch Sam Baker lies in a hospital bed, recovering from an apparent heart attack, but his wife, Marsha, won’t stop making the crisis all about her—much to the dismay of their son, Aaron. The young photographer wonders why his parents even stay together while he and his husband, Malcolm, deal with their own issues as newlyweds. Intimate, yet universal, Michael Slade’s latest play is a wildly funny and touching comedy about marriage—its joys, challenges and responsibilities—and what’s worth fighting for.
