Art Exhibit "Face Value: Portraits from The Kinsey Institute" & "Casual Encounters"
The Kinsey Institute is offering two shows this spring and summer, both featuring a wide range of artworks from our permanent collection. Face Value explores the various ways that artists utilize the portrait, an art form that has existed for millennia, for the exploration of individual identity and experience. This exhibition in the main gallery includes contemporary and vintage photographs, as well as paintings, prints, and sculpture. One of the featured artists is renowned photographer Judy Dater. Casual Encounters, in the institute’s Corridor Gallery, takes a look at intimate yet anonymous sexual interactions, as depicted by European and American artists from the 18th century to the present day.
The Kinsey Institute Gallery is open 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm weekdays only or by appointment Monday - Friday from 8:30 to Noon. Admission is free. Guided or self-guided tours of 6-15 people may be scheduled by calling 812-855-7686
