Becoming America

Opening May 31, 2019

About

Edwin Evans "Grain Fields"The paintings, prints, and sculptures in this new exhibition, drawn from the permanent collection of the BYU Museum of Art, speak of the many frontiers on which America has been and continues to be formed. They are cultural, ideological, as well as physical frontiers, symbolic spaces where powerful ideas constantly rush into each other in a vast river—against which, and within which, America explores its potential.

While each artwork tells its own story, they are gathered in thematic groups as though in dialog, in conversation. We invite you to join in the conversation, to commune with our collection and explore the frontiers of America’s land and peoples, of economic potential and division, frontiers of freedom and conflict, frontiers in which America’s power is most evident not in what it is, but in what it is still becoming.
