Important Update

May 19, 2002, to September 4, 2002 |


Family is composed of the work of thirty-seven artists who have made objects or images that reflect on the idea of family. The works could be thought of as falling into one of several categories: building a family, maintaining a family, or making sense of a family. The works in this exhibition reflect certain conditions and observations, good and bad, of the contemporary and, for that matter, the timeless family.
