William “Buck” Walsky, an Anchorage,
William “Buck” Walsky, an Anchorage, Alaska-based, Colorado Springs-native artist, originally designed the immersive outdoor installation Beach Front for the notorious annual Burning Man festival, a multi-day extravaganza of music and art held in the heart of the Nevada desert. Utilizing found bicycle wheels, structural steel, and LED lights, Walsky’s massive installation responds to movements of the air, and gives the viewer a sensation of being in an underwater wonderland populated by electric jellyfish.
Drawing equally from traditional Japanese
Drawing equally from traditional Japanese Shinto mythology and contemporary Anime films, this immersive, highly detailed video installation by Chiho Aoshima invites the viewer into another world. The title Takaamanohara, the plain of high heaven, refers to a place where Shinto deities reside. With a vivid imagination and a saturated color palette, this video retells a creation story about the time when the gods of heaven separated from the gods of the land.
Born in Tokyo, Japan but
Born in Tokyo, Japan but residing in the United States since 1983, Yoshitomo Saito finds inspiration in the minutia of the natural world, drawing out details of the environment surrounding us and elements of everyday experiences that most would miss or take for granted. Utilizing the Italian lost-wax process of bronze casting, the artist freezes delicate, organic objects in time and assembles them into immersive, meditative, thoughtful and sometimes humorous installations.
Ralph Allen belongs to a
Ralph Allen belongs to a cohort of Haitian artists who began their artistic life outside of Haiti. Allen followed his family into exile during the oppressive Duvalier regime and learned to paint in New York City. Consequently, his work does not follow the formal conventional traditions of Haitian art. His themes, however, remain Haitian, and his large murals are suffused with Haitian street life.
The Art of Haiti: Loas,
The Art of Haiti: Loas, History, and Memory is a major exhibition which explores the contemporary significance of Haitian art. Working in collaboration with the Centre d’Art in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the Fine Arts Center will present paintings by some of Haiti’s major 20th century artists. The exhibition will also feature new works by internationally renowned artist Edouard Duval-Carrié, as well as works by Haitian contemporary artists Tessa Mars and Ralph Allen. This exhibition will challenge commonly held ideas about Haiti as a site of exotic strangeness within the Americas, and offer new ways of understanding Haitian art.
Organized by Participant Inc. (New
Organized by Participant Inc. (New York, NY), this exhibition presents works by artist Baseera Khan that complicate common notions of Muslim women through the artist’s self-exploration of personal history and current geopolitical circumstances. Khan underscores the intersectional themes by the combination of secular, religious, and private imagery as in her series Psychedelic Prayer Rugs (Lunar Count Down, Act Up, and Purple Heart).

The art works presented in
The art works presented in three galleries highlight some of the most celebrated work by indigenous and Latina/o artists in the FAC’s permanent collection. Within an overall chronological flow, the galleries focus on three periods of time spanning over 150 years: mid-19th century, 1930s, and late 20th century to the present. This exhibition explores individual stylistic movements, artists, and topics such as colonial encounters, art markets, and creative innovation, among other subjects. Art works in these galleries will be periodically rotated in an effort to feature a wide range of artworks from the FAC’s extensive collection.
Fun Home is an original,
Fun Home is an original, refreshingly honest musical punctuated with an innovative score that frames the curiosity of childhood and the complexities of family. Alison’s father was many things: a historical preservationist, a funeral home director, a distant parent, and a closeted gay man. In the struggle to understand her father, while also dealing with her own budding sexuality, Alison reveals memories of her life at three different ages. This Tony Award–winning musical, based on the groundbreaking, best-selling graphic memoir, will take audiences on a heartrending and fiercely funny journey.
Documentary Photographer Alex Harris began
Documentary Photographer Alex Harris began creating images of Northern New Mexico in the 1970s, exploring how the interiors and exteriors of homes and vehicles expressed people’s lives in their particular place. This exhibition features a selection of nearly three dozen photographs from Harris’ series Red White Blue and God Bless You, taken between 1979 and 1988, and completed as a book project in 1992. Through intimate views of exuberant lived spaces within these Hispanic American rural communities the artist presents his experience of the cultural landscape.
