The MAC announces Fall 2020 Exhibitions



The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture has announced its exhibitions for fall 2020 including two shows that commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and a third that celebrates the founding of an iconic local organization that same year. The schedule is headlined by POP Power from Warhol to Koons: Masterworks from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, a fast paced journey through five decades of this fun and irreverent style of art.

POP Power from Warhol to Koons - Opens Sunday, October 4 through January 24, 2021
From Campbell's Soup to Mickey Mouse, and from comic strips to balloon dogs, POP Power explores the work of Pop artists, such as leaders Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and present-day artists such as Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.

Music Finds a Way: The Spokane Symphony - Opens Sunday, October 4 through January 10, 2021
Meet the exceptional men and women who have sustained and propelled the Spokane Symphony into its 75th year, and experience the strength and optimism embodied in the world's most versatile instrument, the violin.

Bomber Boys: Portraits from the Front - Opens Sunday, October 4 through May 23, 2021
Featuring a series of candid portraits reproduced from a secret stash of World War II images, ephemera, and a diary from 1945, the exhibition highlights the combat, crew, and camp life of the 445th bomb squadron of the 12th Army Air Corps stationed on Corsica and in Italy.

American Inheritance: Unpacking World War II - Opens Saturday, October 10 through May 23, 2021
Seventy-five years after the fighting stopped, evidence of the world's deadliest global conflict can still be found in almost every home, community and aspect of American life. Over the course of their lives, the men, women and children who experienced World War II first-hand passed down the triumphs and terrors that make up our American Inheritance.
