Art Speaks: Contemporary Art Collections at the James A. Michener Art Museum

. December 12, 2010 . 0 Comments

The James A. Michener Art Museum presents Art Speaks: Contemporary Art Collections open through January 2, 2011 in the Fred Beans Gallery.

In fact, art does speak at the James A. Michener Art Museum. In the exhibition Art Speaks, contemporary artists transform the ordinary to the extraordinary and spark interactivity, reaching out to community members from the youngest to the most senior, to teens in transition and those who may be without a home.
