Considering images of the familiar and the everyday explored in the documentary-style photographs of Stephen Shore, Common Grounds brings together works from the Kemper Museum's permanent collection that respond to the people, places, and things that compose the American vernacular. Artists Tina Barney, Jim Dine, Neeta Madahar, Fairfield Porter, and Wayne Thiebaud, among others, transform the ordinary into the extraordinary through careful observation and personalized depictions of America's common grounds.
