A Window on the West: California Art from the Permanent Collection

  • May 15, 2005 – Sep 4, 2005
Installation view: Weatherspoon Art Museum, 2005.

The East Coast has always seen the West Coast as a very different part of America, with a different geography, climate and culture. Indeed, California has been associated with gold, great weather, surfing, Hollywood and dreaming. This small exhibition offers the opportunity to examine what appears unique and special in West Coast art, as well as what may seem familiar and shared. A Window on the West brings together work by Californians from the Museum's permanent collection including such well-known artists as Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Paul Wonner, David Park, Ed Ruscha, Jay DeFeo, Joan Brown, and Wayne Thiebaud.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
