In an exploration of history, identity and heritage, the Overture Center for the Arts is opening four new exhibits for the winter season. The Playhouse Gallery is displaying “Roots, Our Foundation” through Feb. 26, and Galleries I, II and III are displaying exhibits about various aspects of identity through March 5.

“Art is, in so many ways, the way we present who we are,” says Beth Racette, community engagement manager at the Overture Center. “Aspects of ourselves, questions about ourselves and some of that history … where we’re from.”
