William Downs: Rumbling and Stumbling

Gail and Jeffrey Bayer Grand Atrium

January 14 – March 19, 2022

Artist William Downs uses the image of the human figure to explore ideas and themes of vulnerability, compassion, and the human experience. Downs’ figures are often androgynous, floating in space to create movement, depth, and cultural empathy.
