Is "Web of Life" about winter and summer, or is it really about death and life? what about spring and autumn?

I found the exhibit to be interesting and to have a unique flair with the transition from one area/era of paintings to the next. Of all of the art works, including pottery and furniture and such, I most enjoyed the visible storage. The idea of peaking into someones attic for treasure was exciting and I would have enjoyed more.

I enjoyed the juxtaposition of decorative and "fine" arts, although certain comparisons felt forced - like the early colonial American furniture with the native American pottery from New Mexico. Overall I found the thematic groupings successful, however.

i feel that a lot of people see more clearly how the people from the 19th century were. You can see many artifacts that are interesting. Looking back on how state once was and looking at it now shows an enormous change in society.

It was a very pleasant surprise. I didn't expect to see such a beautiful collection of fine varied works. The artists are a credit to the human spirit.

The American Identities exhibit demonstrates some of colonial America's finest portraits. I would definitely recommend checking it out!

I thought that this exibit was very intersting. It was my favorite so far. I think that the best piece of art is the weaving by Ted Hallman. I have one question though did Rembrant Peal chance his name so he could have the same name ast he famous Rembrant?

it's very interesting! the set up of everything is a bit unconventional, but the exhibit as a whole is great.
