The following exhibitions will be open:
• “Dissonance,” which features 59 works by 35 artists that, according to the museum’s website, “encompass qualities of ‘discord, tension, instability, and conflict,’ thought to ‘aptly fit the moment in which we find ourselves (during the COVID-19 crisis), as individuals, as institutions, as a nation, as a culture.’ ”
• “W. Carl Burger: Mastery of the Medium,” featuring paintings, drawings and collages from the museum’s permanent collection and covering Burger’s entire career.
• “Tiny Intricacies: A Cache of Kinetic Art.”
• “Eva Zeisel: A Century of Designing Elegance.” Works in ceramic, glass and wood.
