Fake It Till You Make It: A Quest For Authenticity

On view through December 11, this art exhibition explores how authenticity is defined and determined in institutions, museums, and among art experts and artists.

Featuring over fifty objects from the permanent collection, Fake It Till You Make It embarks on an exploratory journey of painting, photography, sculpture, mechanical advances of printing, and digital media to discover how authenticity shifts through time and context. From handcrafted copies of Byzantine icons to Andy Warhol's silkscreen printed cultural icons, the exhibition hones in on the subjective defining factors of authenticity and how culture expands and recoils from artists' pushing of boundaries. 

The exhibition is free and open to all during museum operational hours. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will be closed November 23 through 27, 2022, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
