You and Yours – Tweed Museum

Exhibit of Art on the Theme of Family

I went to see the Tweed Museum’s exhibit Your and Yours: Images of Family (you can see good photos of some contemporary pieces and historical pieces from the UMD website). I snapped a few photos with a camera phone, but it is well worth a trip to the museum to see the pieces and especially to view the videos.

“What does a family look like?”

That question guided guest curator Patricia Briggs in her selection of works.  The range of images is tremendously broad – historical works with a scriptural reference, modern drawings that are almost like a psychological exploration.

Drawing the collection together around this theme, rather than a particular style or historical period, creates a varied exhibit. I found that this slowed me down: I had to see each piece for itself, and process it before moving on.

This exhibit will be at the Tweed through October 17. The Tweed Museum of Art does not charge admission, although donations are always accepted.
