OPENING THIS FALL
ROZ CHAST & DEBORAH WILLIS: VISIONARY WOMEN
August 18 – November 3, 2018 Lecture and Gala: Wednesday, October 17 The Galleries at Moore are pleased to honor both Visionary Women Awardees Roz Chast, cartoonist and author, and Deborah Willis, Ph.D, photographer, professor, art historian and curator with presence in The Galleries’ fall exhibition season. Since 2003, the Visionary Woman Awards (VWA) has recognized outstanding women leaders who have made a powerful impact on the worlds of art and design—through our VWA scholarship program, we recognize the extraordinary achievements of women who provide powerful role models for our students. A selection of Chast's original illustrations featured in The New Yorker, including cover artwork and a handful of her pysanky (eggs decorated using a traditional Ukrainian wax-resist method) will be on view in Graham Gallery. Wilson Gallery will feature prints from two recent photographic projects that Dr. Willis is presenting in Philadelphia for the first time.
MAKING SPACE: LEEWAY @ 25
September 15 – December 8, 2018 Keynote and Opening Reception: Friday, September 20, 5:30-8 PM The Galleries at Moore, in collaboration with the Leeway Foundation, are pleased to present Making Space: Leeway @ 25, a survey of the organization's history. Realized in two parts, this exhibition features a curated selection of artworks by former award recipients, as well as historical materials that recognize Leeway's impact, honor its evolution and celebrate its future. The Leeway Foundation promotes artistic expression that amplifies the voices of those on the margins, promotes sustainable and healthy communities, and works in the service of movements for economic and social justice. The Galleries are also celebrating The Parkway's 100th aniversary this fall and through December of 2018. Click here for information on The Parkway Centennial.
