Exhibition: One Room Mansion
One Room Mansion will explore compact living as a viable and necessary 21st-century residential dwelling option for people of all ages and incomes. Inspired by a Japanese concept, the exhibition explores the possibilities associated with individual living spaces grouped with generous communal amenities. This simple concept could provide a more economical supply to meet the increasing demand for housing near transit, restaurants, and workplaces, as society transitions from a suburban, car-oriented lifestyle to an urban, low carbon, one. Paring down the private living space needed by each individual while investing in shared space among residents can turn a single room into an entire mansion!

Exhibition: Photography and Discovery
When photographs were first widely produced and distributed during the second half of the nineteenth century, they offered viewers new ways to discover unfamiliar people, distant places, and things previously unknown to them. This exhibition considers these three broad groups of subjects that manifested photographically during the medium's first seventy years. During this exciting period, images were captured for many different reasons--from documentation to curiosity--and they came in many forms, including deluxe book illustrations, portable portrait cards, and frame-worthy landscape views.
