ExhibitsUSA Introduces Two New Exhibitions

ExhibitsUSA is M-AAA’s flagship program, providing touring exhibitions of museum quality, at nonprofit costs. With this program, we serve communities in our region and beyond with arts experiences that might otherwise never reach them.

We currently have two new exhibitions, scheduled to begin touring in 2018. Book them today for your gallery, museum, or space.

Art of the Aloha Shirt: Keoni of Hawaii, 1938–51 includes sixty objects, including original textile artwork, production sketches and swatches, advertisements, and vintage shirts, telling the story of an early innovator, John “Keoni” Meigs, in an industry that has left an indelible mark on fashion in the United States and the world. Learn more.

Young at Art: A Selection of Caldecott Book Illustrations includes original illustrations from Caldecott Medal recipients and from “runner-up” Honor books, as well as other illustrations by award-winning artists. Learn more.
