Hallie Ford Museum of Art announces new exhibit
The Hallie Ford Museum of Art (HFMA or Hallie Ford) stated in a press release that its next exhibit will be entitled “Time and Place: Northwest Art.” The exhibition is a part of Hallie Ford’s permanent collection, though many of the pieces have never been put on display. The exhibit will have a specific focus on Northwestern artists, both well-known and underappreciated. The pieces range from contemporary fine art (such as sculptures) to traditional pieces (such as baskets). Organized by the HFMA’s Curator of Collections and Exhibitions Jonathan Bucci, “Time and Place” explores how our concept of place can evolve over time. Subtopics explored in this vein include the legacy of colonialism, as well as “human impact on the land.” The exhibit will be available for viewing pleasure starting on September 18th and continuing through December 18th, 2021. More information can also be found on their website. Below are images of two pieces from the exhibit, provided to The Collegian by Hallie Ford.
