Canton, Ohio — The Canton Museum of Art (CMA) opens its new Fall Season with three exhibitions featuring diverse artists lending their voices in a message of hope for the world — raising our awareness, challenging our thinking and recalling our past.
Opening September 1 and on view through October 31, the exhibitions are headlined by the touring premiere of Environmental Impact, including 75 works from more than 25 contemporary artists in painting, photography, sculpture and installations that focus on the critical environmental issues of our time. The exhibit Restoration, Recycling and Remembering: The Art of Barbara Krupp, features acrylic and oil stick paintings that communicate the beauty of the old and the changing world around us. And from the CMA Permanent Collection, the original exhibit And That’s The Way It Was gives voice to artists in painting and sculptures reflecting the world’s past landscapes.
