The newest collection show at MAM, Love Letters to the Collection, seeks to expand the significance of the Contemporary American Indian Art Collection at MAM. Though the museum is closed, this exhibition is perfectly suited to engage with from the comfort and safety of your home.
The Teachable course featuring this exhibition is LIVE and features in-depth biographies of artists, a history of the museum, artist statements, and more. Family Watch by Donna Loos was installed just before the galleries closed, but you can still experience it! Each piece on view has its own email address and we encourage you to write your own love letter as you virtually explore this exhibition. Free (as always!) and open to all ages, including young adults and teens.
MAM believes that if a single artwork can depict the ideas of an individual artist, then a collection of art can embody the character of a community. We're all ears and can't wait to hear what you have to say! All letters we receive will be added to the object record for each artwork. Add to our collective history with your voice!
