Derrick Adams: Sanctuary (through Aug 12)
50 works of mixed-media collage, assemblage on wood panels, and sculpture reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. This exhibit inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers during the Jim Crow era will make grown-ups think and delight little car lovers.

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro (through Sep 9)
See pioneering feminist Miriam Schapiro’s “femmages, distinctive hybrids of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts as well works by a select group of contemporary artists highlighting the tremendous role Schapiro played in the reframing of craft and decoration. Pretty patterns, so much color, and thought-provoking sculptures.
