Concordia hosted “ISMS: Concordia's Permanent Collection in Context” in the Marxhausen Gallery of Art from Jan. 14 to Feb. 15. An opening reception was held Sunday, Jan. 27, with an exhibit talk in the Thom Leadership Education Center auditorium.

“ISMS: Concordia's Permanent Collection in Context” highlighted the dominant historical movements of 19th and 20th century modern and contemporary art. The exhibition grouped artwork into traditional movements such as Regionalism, Abstract Expressionism, and those artists associated with Pop Art and Post Minimalism. Artists represented in the show included James McNeill Whistler, Grant Wood, Robert Motherwell, Jasper Johns, Chuck Close, Francisco Clemente and Sol Le Witt.

The Marxhausen Gallery is the on-campus exhibition space for Concordia and hosts a variety of exhibitions each year. It is located in Jesse Hall and is open Monday-Friday 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
