American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8
,

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.
