Inside the Cube: Looking Back Over 40 Years
April 20–July 15, 2018
Designed by architect Tom Larson and opened in 1977, the Art Gallery on the University of New England’s Portland campus and its collections have undergone various phases of history and development. This exhibition will focus on the story and transformation of the gallery’s architectural space and permanent collection. Beginning with the architectural history and museum ideologies of the 1970s in which the “Cube” was built, and ending with the recent endowment of the Stephen K. Halpert Photography Collection, this exhibition will offer selections from the permanent collection with a comprehensive evolution of the UNE Art Gallery in Portland.
