PAST EXHIBITIONS from the ARCHIVE: Curator’s Blog

Exhibitions from the Archive

While our doors are temporarily closed to the public until further notice due to COVID-19, MMA staff continue to work behind the scenes.  We are planning for the future and finding new ways to engage with our audiences until we can again welcome you into the galleries. This series of posts offers a look back at staff-favorite exhibitions and gives some insight into the hows and whys of what we do. The MMA  staff selected these shows for how they have helped shape the Muskegon Museum of Art of today and serve as templates for our exciting future. It’s critical to note that none of these shows would have been possible without our generous sponsors and volunteers and our highly engaged museum community. Ultimately we exist to serve you: to educate, entertain, inform, inspire, surprise, and occasionally challenge.
