The Nixon Gallery spotlights thematic works on paper from our permanent collection. One side of the gallery features works on the subject of Incarceration which coincides with the project The U.S. in the Age of Mass Incarceration. This project, supported by the 2016–2017 Feinberg Family Distinguished Lecture Series at the University of Massachusetts, explores the ways in which state violence, mass incarceration, and mass criminalization have transformed the U.S. economy, culture, and society.
On a different note, the other side of the gallery shows the many ways dogs have been represented in art, from early Renaissance prints to modern photography.
