On the Edge: Art of California

Exhibition Website

Jan 28 2017 - Jul 16 2017

Presented in the museum’s newly dedicated California galleries, this exhibition features art from the 1960s to now, made by Bay Area and Los Angeles artists on a range of subjects, from social justice to the natural world. 

Works on view include William Allan’s sensuous, coloristic studies of skies in the American West and Sister Corita Kent’s vibrant screenprints, often designed as calls to action against oppression and war. In addition, works by Robert Colescott, Andrea Bowers, and Sandow Birk, among others, address social inequity through a variety of historical references, styles, and tones, while gesturing collectively to the rich multiplicity of voices that power the great American experiment.
