Cows Can Dream – Family Gallery Exhibit
Apr 24 all-day

Did you know cows can dream? ASI’s Family Gallery becomes an immersive play environment that explores the story of Sam – a cow who dreams and sometimes wanders through Sweden’s Wanås sculpture park, appearing in artworks.

Inspired by the innovative and imaginative children’s book, Cows Can Dream, with text by Jason Diakité, a Swedish Grammy winning rap musician also known as Timbuktu, and with illustrations by Maria Bajt, a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm and Berlin, the book is part of the Wanås Konst Children’s Book series featuring images by contemporary artists and texts by influential writers.

The books are an experiment in words and images, with each taking place at Wanås and, like the exhibition at ASI, encouraging discovery of what is art and how we all are creative.

Buy the book at the ASI Museum Store and bring Sam’s adventures home. 

Estuary: Simon Levin and Amy Smith
Apr 24 all-day

Estuary, an exhibition of work by Simon Levin (Gresham, WI) and Amy Smith (Lincoln, NE), is an evolved dialogue of formal elements that explore ideas and properties of water. Making work from their separate studios, but in conversation through an exchange of work over the years, they’ve collaboratively paired select pieces for the exhibition. 

Roadside Attractions— Next 5 Exits
Apr 24 all-day

This exhibition, guest-curated by Pattie Chalmers, reveals a vision of the attractions of the roadside through the work of five artists. These artists—Chalmers, Jeremy Kane, Peter Morgan, Mariko Paterson, and Nathan Prouty—create works that depict the recollection of travels, a portrayal of collected memories, nostalgia for past Americana, and the desire to contain an experience within an object.
