People’s Choice


May 5, 2023 @ 11:00 am
June 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Concurrent with Magic Hour: Art between Waking and Dreams, this very special exhibition is drawn from the MMoA permanent collection, featuring art curated entirely by the public. On display in MMoA’s Halsey and Liebig Galleries, People’s Choice presents not only the top selections from a field of 100 works of art, but also the thoughts and reflections of those who voted.

For one month, visitors to the Museum were invited to cast their ballots on 100 paintings, sculptures, photographs, etchings, and drawings. The special People’s Choice exhibition is exclusively comprised of the 50 pieces that received the highest number of votes.

Visitors who missed voting in the selection process can still participate, right up until June 4. The voting will continue during the run of People’s Choice, concluding with a special People’s Choice Award for the piece with the most votes overall.

Voting has closed! Visit the exhibition between May 5 and June 4 to see which pieces were chosen!

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 4, from 5:30 – 7 PM
