Whether we’re taking a road trip, commuting to work, riding the bus, or jogging through the neighborhood, motion and transition define much of our lives. Here at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, we’re also in a state of motion, not only physically through the changing of exhibitions, but also intellectually as we offer new programs and classes that better suit the needs of our public.
In celebration of our forward momentum, In Transit takes a fun look at the idea of movement, transportation, and overall change. Drawn from the permanent collection, this show presents the idea of transit in a variety of forms, from physical transportation to spiritual enlightenment. Some works, such as the replica wagons, reference the western migrations of the nineteenth century across the United States, as people sought out new opportunities in the American Southwest. Other works evoke a more internal, intellectual kind of movement, with knowledge and spiritual awareness becoming the means to moving into a different plane of being. What all of these works share is a sense of transition, and we invite you to enjoy the spirit of change.
