Persistence of Vision

Persistence of Vision explores how we visualize the unseen and navigate the unknown through photography, video, and interactive installations. Based on conversations with blind artists, Woolpert’s work references astronomy, inspires wonder, and reframes disability.” Dimly-lit galleries draw viewers to engage more deeply (sometimes through touch), yielding discovery. All ages. Previously exhibited at Onondaga Community College (NY), LowellArts (MI), Griffin Museum of Photography (MA), and Humble Arts Foundation (online), the artist curates/installs onsite. “In Woolpert’s excellent installation viewers can see what they do not see, even as they’re presented with the visual ironies of self-hood.” — Stephen Kuusisto, author, Planet of the Blind

7500 Miles; An Internal Turn

“7500 Miles; An Internal Turn” is an exhibition which offers a unique approach in representing a new wave in Iranian contemporary art and specifically women artists. These artists have found their creative way around typical clichés and stereotypical images of Iran and women, and they artists invite the viewer to be part of their intimate and private moments. The goal is to bring Iranian art to cities such as Detroit, which are less exposed to Iranian art scene, and make the connection between the two countries as it is very timely and sensitive now due to new political obstructions.

Museum To Go is perfect for students pre-kindergarten to adult, as exhibits change to fit developmental levels.
