    March 12, 2020, All Day @ Museum Amphitheater and Phelps Grove Park

    An outdoor installation composed of 23 printed "stones" from Kansas City-based artist Shawn Bitters that, when decoded, reveal a narrative of the landscape. This installation, on the grounds of the Museum and Phelps Grove Park, is a collaboration between the Museum and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board. On view through July 2020 as a long-term loan courtesy of the artist.

  3. Creating an American Identity

    March 12, 2020, 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM @ Musgrave Wing Galleries

    The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains over 10,000 objects in nearly all media. The works selected for this exhibition were chosen for their ability to reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans. There is no singular or fixed American identity. American art and history is shaped by multiple perspectives, stories, and experiences, and as such, this exhibition aims to present a multiplicity of views within the wider context of historical moments. The exhibition includes 75 works from as wide an array of artistic voices as possible within our current collection, including even more works by women, people of color, Native Americans, and LGBTQ+ communities. This exhibit includes major work by George Caleb Bingham, Asher B. Durand, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alison Saar, among many others.
