MW Gallery is the new permanent home of the Mott-Warsh Collection (MWC).
We provide a welcoming environment for engagement with fine art created by artists of the African diaspora and those who reflect on it.
Art can be a catalyst for cultural awareness, creative thinking, and self-empowerment.
The gallery's current exhibition, Where Do We Go from Here? Selections from the Mott-Warsh Collection features 43 works by Lorna Simpson, Fabrice Monteiro, Adrian Piper, Glenn Ligon, Emma Amos, Radcliffe Bailey, Dawoud Bey and more.

In this poignant video, Carrie Mae Weems uses symbolic imagery, video footage, music, and spoken word to examine themes of social justice, race, and identity. The work incorporates aspects of the artist’s stage-performance, Grace Notes: Reflections for Now that considers the concept of grace in the face of tragedy and injustice, focusing specifically on the recent deaths of African American men, women and children at the hands of police officers. The loss of their lives become personal as Weems presents their deaths as more than names on the news, but people with lives and families who continue to mourn, inviting the viewer to mourn as well.
