Politics and Daily Life

September 21 - December 15, 2024

In anticipation of the 2024 U.S. Presidential election, the Palmer Museum of Art presents Politics and Daily Life. This special exhibition will present a range of politically-inflected imagery from the permanent collection to catalyze conversations around democracy, empowerment, propaganda, patriotism, and protest. The exhibition on view in the museum Works on Paper Gallery will present drawings, prints, and photographs drawn from the permanent collection organized into four thematic sections—Monuments, Events, People, and Symbols. Artists from the late 1600s to the present day will be featured, including Käthe Kollwitz, William Gropper, Gordon Parks, Elliott Erwitt, Larry Fink, Jasper Johns, Billy Morrow Jackson, Robert Arneson, Eleanor Antin, and Papo Colo.
