What happens to exhibitions after they are completed?

As much as we would love to, we cannot keep all our exhibitions up forever. In order to give opportunities to other artists, new exhibitions are typically rotated through the museum monthly. Our exhibitions provide a great insight into the mind of talented artists from all walks of life. We don’t want the final date of the exhibition to be the last opportunity to observe the work. Once an exhibition reaches its last day of presentation at the Crisp Museum, sample photographs, and descriptions are sent to the archived exhibits and the previous year’s exhibits are catalogued here 

Interwoven: The Lives and Roles of Women: Art by Jean Rissover

Aug. 6-Sept. 19, 2021 Opening Reception Aug. 6, 4-8 p.m. "The characters I paint live in my head, and act out their lives there.
