Drawn from the Ogden Museum Permanent Collection, BIG is an exhibition highlighting the Museum’s largest holdings. Assembled together for the first time, this exhibition showcases works that are typically hidden from public view due to their complicated size, and will celebrate artists’ endeavors on a grand scale. Artists included are Willie Birch, Nicole Charbonnet, Michael Roque Collins, Clyde Connell, Jeffrey Cook, Robert Gordy, Gregory Saunders, Kendall Shaw and Hunt Slonem, among others.
The idea for BIG was born out of a continual challenge most museums face, which is lack of storage space for large scaled works. This exhibition embraces these large scaled works and assembles them in one exhibition for the first time in the Museum’s history.
