Out of concern for public health and safety issues related to COVID-19, and in accordance with Moore College of Art & Design's guidelines, The Galleries are now tentatively closed to the public until further notice. All internal programs and public events scheduled to take place have been canceled or reimagined in a virtual space. As new information becomes available, any changes will be communicated through social media and our website.
Our thoughts now are on those who have been affected by this global crisis and on those in our Philadelphia community who are feeling its impacts—please be safe and take care of yourselves and one another. For up-to-date information about the College's COVID-19 response plan, please visit moore.edu/coronavirus.
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR SPACES
ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS: JONATHAN SANTORO
In reexamining "The Wizard of Oz" through the lens of both personal and cultural memory, Santoro's installation transforms Dorothy’s oddly matched companions into an assortment of visual misnomers and objects associated with suburban lawn décor, property protection, and spectated punishment. Our Window on Race becomes both a voyeuristic stage and a security arena—on view 24/7.

The RINGS! exhibition will now take place in May-June of next year. Check back later in 2020 for more details. These dates are tentative.
RINGS! offers a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. This international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. Countries represented in the exhibition: Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. Organized by Helen Drutt, researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
