FEATURED EXHIBITION

Positive Fragmentation: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

FEB 3, 2023 – MAY 14, 2023

Positive Fragmentation: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation features more than 180 prints by contemporary women artists who employ a strategy of fragmentation in their artistic process. A notable strength of the exhibition is its focus on women artists of color who historically have been underrepresented in many museums’ permanent collections and in exhibition programming.

The Taubman Museum of Art has more than 2,000 works in the collection, from the 10-foot sculpture Art World by James Harold Jennings to the inch-and-a-half square photograph Maggie on Beach with Dog by Thomas Cowperthwaite Eakins, and from 3,500-year-old Egyptian Ushabiti ceramic figures to contemporary Roanoke artists.

These works are shown on a rotating basis in exhibitions in the Fralin Center for American Art, the Museum’s main gallery level on the second floor. Explore a sample of selected works from the collection below.
