Using Hale Woodruff’s (1900—1980) painting Vignette (1970) as a point of departure, Collected. Vignettes highlights works from the permanent collection that exhibit an impressionistic quality through formal and conceptual means. The artworks offer a vast meditation on technique and subject matter, ranging widely in medium and time span. Organized by Curatorial Fellow Tasha Parker, Collected. Vignettes features Norman Lewis (1909—1979), Wangechi Mutu (b. 1972), Adrian Piper (b. 1948), Gary Simmons (b. 1964), Alma Thomas (1891—1978), and William Villalongo (b. 1975), among others.

Above, listen to a variety of artists, museum staff, and curators discuss works in Collected. Vignettes.
