July 26–September 7, 2024

Opening Day Family Fun:
Saturday, July 27, from 10am–3pm

“Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies, with Uncle Henry, who was a farmer, and Aunt Em, who was the farmer’s wife.”

"The Wonderful  Wizard of Oz is more than just a story; it's a timeless exploration of what it means to find and appreciate the complex emotions around the concept of home. Dorothy’s journey, alongside her wonderfully loyal and caring friends, mirrors the universal quest for belonging and self-discovery, making it a story that truly resonates across generations." Molly Demeulenaere, Executive Director.

At the beating heart of this enchanting exhibition is Christina Schlesinger's "The Dorothy Paintings." This compelling collection of thirteen mural-sized canvases reimagines Dorothy's adventures with a freshness of perspective that aptly portrays her as the symbol of youthful resilience and independence. Schlesinger’s work demands attention while simultaneously depicting a delicateness and vulnerability rarely seen successfully in combination.
