Celebrating 30 Years of Igniting Change Through the Arts
Art Omi will commemorate the milestone through programs and events that highlight the organization’s work over the past three decades. These include the debut of Art Omi Presents, a new conversation series exploring contemporary arts and architecture. An Ecology Series will offer visitors guided tours that engage with the natural landscape of the Sculpture & Architecture Park throughout the year. Also in 2022, Art Omi breaks ground at a new site in Chatham, New York. Art Omi Pavilions at Chatham will present the work of distinguished artists and collectors in a series of 18 standalone pavilions distributed over a scenic 190-acre site.
Jeffrey Gibson’s exhibition, To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth, at Art Omi closes on January 2, 2022.
Gibson’s exhibition of quilts, garments, drums, prints, and video will be on display for the next two weeks. Gibson is a Choctaw-Cherokee artist known for his abstract painting, sculpture and prints. His use of language as a visual element permeates the installed works, examining race, sexuality, religion, and gender. The result is a rich, layered experience both poignant and celebratory.
