Morris Graves: Layers of Time

January 18, 2018 to March 18, 2018

In recognition of the importance of Morris Graves’s work and home to Keith Achepohl, we asked Achepohl if he would curate a companion exhibition. This selection, from more than 500 drawings by Graves (American, 1910-2001) in our collection, celebrates Graves’s symbolic and highly personal use of vessel imagery over the course of his life.
