Canton Museum of Art 


On display through March 7, 2021

  • DANCING IN THE LIGHT: MASTERWORKS FROM THE AGE OF AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM
    The exhibition features paintings and works on paper borrowed from private collections, museum collections, and CMA’s own collection to tell the story of the movement of American Impressionism from its beginnings in France to the shores of America – and why it is still relevant and approachable today as one of the finest artistic periods. Several works rarely seen in public from major artists held in private collections will be featured in the exhibition. (Featured in the image above)

  • 60 PROOF: SIX DECADES OF THE WHISKY PAINTERS OF AMERICA
    The Whiskey Painters of America (WPA) was started in the late 50's in Akron, Ohio with a small group of professional artists belonging to the Akron Society of Artists, and one individual in particular, Joe Ferriot, who was instrumental in the formation of the Whiskey Painters of America. Joe, traveling extensively for work, and longing to paint on these trips, devised a small palette out of an aspirin box, divided with plastic strips to hold his paint and devised a screw-together brush (like a pool cue) that would fit inside this small box along with strips of watercolor paper cut to about 4" X 5" so that all would fit neatly into his shirt pocket.

  • CERAMICS FOR THE ANTHROPOCENE: DENNIS MEINERS CERAMICS
    Dennis Meiners is a Portland, Oregon based ceramic artist whose work channels energy that creates a visual depiction of the effects of human influence on the ecosystems shared between humans and animal.

First Ladies' National Historic Site 


Now on display through February 2021

  • FIRST LADIES ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL
    Presidential campaigns - like the position of first lady – have evolved over time. "First Ladies on the Campaign Trail" examines the various roles that women have played while acting on behalf of their husbands during presidential campaigns. Through campaign memorabilia, speeches, photos, and other materials, the role of a candidate’s wife in the election process is examined and evaluated.

  • BREAKING THE GLASS CEILING: WOMEN WHO HAVE RUN FOR PRESIDENT
    "Breaking the Glass Ceiling" presents five women who dared to dream of a time when a woman elected as President of the United States will be unremarkable. Former first lady Hillary Clinton is the most well-known and contemporary woman to try, with two hard fought presidential battles under her belt. Clinton made progress by standing on the broad shoulders of many who came before her; two of the more recent visionaries were Shirley Chisholm and Margaret Chase Smith. But the two women who provocatively made the first fissures in the glass were free-spirited Victoria Woodhull and the daring Belva Lockwood, both resilient originals in the nineteenth century.

  • COLORS
    “Colors!” features artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection that are grouped by color, ranging from vintage dresses and hats to glassware and china. The selection criteria was simple: each artifact had to be mostly a single color, which we have displayed in the order of the rainbow.
