Opening Reception Saturday, March 7 from 3 p.m.- 5 p.m.

Hampden Gallery is currently closed as part of the University's response to the coronavirus.  Since visitors only had two weeks to visit the exhibition, a virtual gallery tour is available now!  

Humor is not the first thing you think of when researching or discussing Contemporary or Modern Art, but it does have a far more significant place than one might presume. R. Crumb, Peter Saul and Erwin Wurm to name just three, cannot be completely understood without considering their ability to make us smile or laugh. Even the late Picasso paintings and prints had as much humor as they did restlessness, angst or sexual tension in his continued quest for the extreme. A Horse Walked Into a Bar is a survey of some of today’s artists who continue to push the boundaries of fine art toward wit and whimsy.
