For the inaugural juried exhibition in SAM’s historic bank building, we feature contemporary works by Pennsylvania artists whose processes are as essential to the work of art as the final product. Process-focused art embraces fluid changes in the creative journey rather than following a predetermined plan.

The Process Art Movement that began in the 1960s was inspired by the subconscious creativity inherent in Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Performance Art. For example, the gestural application of paint on canvas by Jackson Pollock is pivotal to our understanding the finished painting. Art critic Harold Rosenberg famously referenced the active nature of Pollock’s work: “What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event,” he wrote. “The big moment came when it was decided to paint ‘just to paint.’” The final culmination is the pure human expression embedded in the creative process.

The exhibition is at the museum at 1401 North Third Street in Harrisburg. Admission is free during the opening from 6 to 9 p.m.
