For human beings, the importance of physical shelter is undeniable. However, the idea, the word, the image of "home" is a highly charged concept, engendering very different notions for each of us. In this exhibition, 33 artists reveal shapes, places, and scenes of homes that may surprise us or trigger familiar memories and emotions.

Some artists have focused on the outside surroundings and the exterior look of homes. Others explore interior furnishings and objects that define the inhabitants, whether it's their own home, a prison cell or the White House. In addition to responding to the physical aspects of a home, artists also have sociological concerns. How do we make affordable homes for all? What happens when storms threaten or destroy people's living spaces or the economy forces people to lose their domestic environments to foreclosure? What if you live in the middle of nowhere or nowhere at all in the middle of a crowded city?

Whether an old one or a current one, comfortable or foreign, a physical, psychological or conceptual place that you know well or have just encountered, "home" is a dominant image in the canvas of life for us all.
