It is necessary to occasionally look back to better understand where we are now. Decades: The 1980s is a continuation of the Roswell Museum’s look at artistic output on a ten-year basis reflecting on how artists grappled with changing times. All works presented in this exhibition are from the museum’s permanent collection. On display are works of art created during the 1980s entering the museum’s collection from 1980 to 2012. At least one work is on display created within each of the 10 years comprising the decade. Works of art by 42 artists are exhibited, 15 of which have participated in the Roswell Artist-in-Residence (RAiR) program between 1970 and 2010.
