Staking Claim: A California Invitational

through Jan 26
8 Oct, 2013 - 26 Jan, 2014

This original exhibition is the second installment of a triennial series showcasing the talent of and diverse scope of photographic work being done by photographers living within the Museum’s home state. Sixteen different artists, all of whom reside in California, are featured in the exhibition and all of the work has been created within the past five years.

The artists are both established and emerging and the variety of work is as varied as the state of California itself. Staking Claim: A California Invitational embraces the digital medium but also remains true to, and in some cases reinterprets, traditional photographic processes.  The result is a dynamic exhibition that highlights the constant evolution of the art form.
