Current Exhibitions


Without Camouflage. Dafna Kaffeman. Silvia Levenson.

April 11, 2014 through August 31, 2014. 

The David Owsley Museum of Art has joined forces with the Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass to present Without Camouflage. Dafna Kaffeman. Silvia Levenson., an exhibition focusing on a theme that dominates today’s art in general: the artist as social and political commentator. 

In the exhibition, two highly acclaimed artists, Israeli-born Dafna Kaffeman and Argentinian-born Silvia Levenson, examine political and social issues as essentially the result of human interaction. In turn, they have selected the work of six next-generation sculptors to be seen in some depth for a  companion exhibition at Minnetrista.   Both exhibitions are accompanied by fully illustrated catalogues.

Support for the exhibition provided by: Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass Endowment Fund; ARTSALIVE! Ball State University College of Fine Arts; the Sursa Art Exhibitions and Visiting PerformersProgram Fund; the Friends of the David Owsley Museum of Art; the Association of Israel’sDecorative Arts (AIDA); Bullseye Glass Company; Doron and Marianne Livnat, Tel Aviv, Israel;Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser; the Joan and Milton Baxt Foundation;Suzanne and Norman Cohn Family; and the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest.




Photorealism and the Automobile 

Through April 30, 2014 

Beginning in the 1960s, a group of artists, known as photorealists, was using the camera as a visual aid in creating photorealistic images of scenes of everyday America. The automobile was a recurring subject for the photorealists, appearing in settings as diverse as urban landscapes, roadside diners, and reflections in store windows. Together the artists represented in the exhibition make poignant statements on the changing American culture of their time, encouraging viewers to consider the power of the automobile in their own lives. The exhibition includes photorealist prints from 1972 to 1980. An exhibition handout is available for use. Brown Study Room
