Coloring reveals how color can offer a range of physical and conceptual links—to the human body, nature, science, and popular culture. Drawn from the museum's collection and including several loans from regional collectors, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints whose dominant characteristic is color. For some, the exhibition title Coloring might bring to mind the childhood process of filling in—or not—the predetermined areas of an activities book. For our purposes, the word recognizes the serious play of adults, whose uses of various colors have more complex implications and consequences. Artists include Josef Albers, Ed Clark, Sonia Delaunay-Terk, Sam Gilliam, Hans Hofmann, Ralph Humphrey, Scott Ingram, Alfred Jensen, Judith Rushin, Judith Scott, among many others.
