(Sept. 7-Jun. 29) — "HOME(less)" features the works of seventy international artists who explore the meaning of home and the loss of home in works reflecting personal experience, historical and contemporary events, cultural diversity, and the universal human condition.

Curator Laura Kruger describes the scope of this exhibition by asking, “Home – is it an actuality, a concept, a dream, or some combination of these and more? Is it primarily a shelter, a refuge, a storage place, a hope, an aspiration, ideal? We identify ourselves by the idea of a homeland although we may not have visited or dwelt in such a place. We are made homeless by arbitrary acts of nature – fire, flood, the heaving of the earth – and by war, illness, and poverty. Today, humankind is living in an ever-increasing morass of homeless people, refugees, and displaced individuals.”
