Here We Are: Painting and Sculpting the Human Form

March 9 - October 20
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating indefinitely

“We convince,” wrote the poet Walt Whitman, “by our presence.” He argued that the human body is not merely a physical object, but the means to emotional experience and connection. In celebrating its dynamic nature, he famously proclaimed, “I sing the body electric.” Countless visual artists likewise have explored and affirmed the charged power of the human form. With works from the Weatherspoon’s collection of modern and contemporary art, this installation considers the myriad ways in which they have done…

Interwoven: Natural and Illusory Textiles

June 22 - September 29
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating indefinitely

The textile industry put Greensboro on the map. In fact, one of its most productive mills, Cone Mills, was a world leader in the manufacturing of corduroy, flannel, denim, and other cotton fabrics for most of the 20th century. In homage to this legacy, the museum will showcase works of art by artists who either incorporate fabric as an artmaking tool or suggest its physical characteristics. While fabric has had a long history in the field of craft, it was…

Alyson Shotz: Un/Folding

September 14 - December 22

Treading a line between order and chaos, planned uniformity and unplanned disarray, Alyson Shotz employs natural phenomena—such as mass, force, gravity, and light—to create her artworks. Purposely working across disciplines, she gives her sculptures many forms, each particular to a specific concept of study. Like a scientist, Shotz poses questions and establishes parameters within which she experiments. However, her artworks do not mimic scientific principles, but instead metaphorically represent their abstract notions of space. Readings in physics and mathematics inspire…
