People have used depictions of the human form or parts of it, from the hand stencils found in cave paintings to the selfies of today, to tell stories, to communicate, and/or share a narrative.  Likewise, many artists working in glass have used the human form to share their individual story telling.

Lines in the Sand explores the history of the desert through our relationship to the land, environment, and community. Drawn from the permanent collection, this exhibition highlights the museum’s founding collections of historical Indigenous art, depictions of the California desert, and contemporary art inspired by the physical and cultural environment of the state. Focusing on the practices of artists, Lines in the Sand  juxtaposes the historical with the contemporary, revealing continued affinities and shared perspectives across time.

Unsettled is a sweeping presentation of contemporary art by more than 75 artists living or working in the Greater West. The exhibition’s fertile terrain is a “super region” that runs from the top of Alaska, through the North American West, and all the way down to Central America, and the work created here explores the geography of vast frontiers, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, and the inevitable conflicts that arise when these factors coexist.
