Intersections: Archives Inspiring Art

On display through November 6, 2021

Lynn Rodeman Metzger Galleries

A closing reception will be held October 22, 2021 from 4:00 - 7:00 PM. RSVP to reserve your free timed ticket.


Intersections: Archives Inspiring Art invites artists to create new work inspired by the collections at the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology (CCHP). Ohio artists were invited to create art inspired by selected photographs from our archival collections. An exhibition and performances of the winning pieces welcome the public to explore the intersection of art, psychology, and museums as methods of understanding what it means to be human.

The exhibition is now open in the Institute for Human Science and Culture's Metzger Galleries. Learn more about our hours and admission.
