About the Exhibition
Call & Response
October 17 - December 31, 2020
The “Call & Response” exhibition showcases innovative works of art by regional artists while offering a glimpse of the Museum’s collection through fresh eyes. The Newport Art Museum is home to approximately 2,700 works of art including prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures, paintings, textiles, and decorative arts. For this exhibition, regional artists working in a diverse array of media were invited to plumb the Museum’s collection for creative inspiration with the goal of creating an original work of art, in any medium, in response to a museum object. The exhibition features each artist’s imaginative work of art beside the collection work to which it responds.
