Pulling Back the Curtain: Behind the Scenes at the Museum

Through March 10, 2018

Pulling Back the Curtain is an interactive exhibit that creatively explores the mysterious rituals that take place behind-the-scenes at museums. Why can’t you touch the artifacts in museum exhibits? And why do museums hide most of the objects they own?

Re-writing the Streets: The International Language of Stickers

Paper Bullets: 100 Years of Political Stickers

Through March 10, 2018

Street art stickers have emerged as a provocative vehicle for self-expression and an effective way to engage passersby.  Stickers may be used to “tag” a space and make it temporarily one’s own, to sell products or services, to publicize social media sites, or to offer social commentary and critique. Two new exhibitions at the Museum of Culture & Environment feature street art stickers from around the world.

Rewriting the Streets shows the broad range of street stickers from around the world, while Paper Bullets addresses the history of political stickers, both in the U.S. and abroad.  Together these exhibitions include over 1600 original, unused stickers, grouped by artist, theme, date, and geographic location.  These stickers are among the finest examples from two collectors, Catherine Tedford in the United States and Oliver Baudach in Germany, and this is the first time these exhibitions have appeared in the Pacific Northwest.
