Children's Museum of the Arts is pleased to present Home Sweet Home: Is a Home a Sanctuary?, a group exhibition featuring Emilie Clark, Tom Fruin, Todd Hido, Lucia Hierro, Ann Toebbe, Shinique Smith, and Letha Wilson, on view from December 19, 2019 — May 3, 2020, in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery. Is a home a sanctuary? Throughout history, we have built shelters to protect from the elements, intruders, and animals of prey, but at a certain point, people wanted more than just a hideout or shelter. Issues such as privacy, family needs, and personal comforts began to influence the types of residences that were built and lived in. The idea of home moves beyond the concept of a place to live or a place of shelter, and connects to ideas of identity, safety, one's place in the world, as well as a foundation for a lifetime, and a place to leave…and possibly return to. When does a house provide the sanctuary of a home? When is home really a sanctuary?
