The Stark Museum of Art presents special changing exhibitions to explore themes in greater depth or with new approaches. Special exhibitions offer an opportunity to view an individual artist’s art in concentration or to delve into a topic. These rotating exhibitions have traditionally come from the Stark Museum’s permanent collections. Future exhibitions will continue to use the Museum’s resources, while also including loans from other museums and private collections.
