"Made in California:" Not Our California

This massive exhibition seeks to provide a fresh model for viewing the development of California art in its historical and cultural context during the 20th Century. Unfortunately, the shifting emphasis and physical layout of the exhibition marginalizes the art of the first half of the century as well as the contributions of minority ethnicities. Intentionally or not, the result is neither enlightening nor convincing.



Continuing and
Recommended Exhibitions


Continuing and Recommended features short items about exhibitions (and occasional special community events) that our contributors think will be of interest to you. Think of it as a tip sheet.
