Special Exhibition: Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings, 1942-1955

Organized by the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation in conjunction with the Crocker Art Museum, this blockbuster exhibition and its accompanying catalogue aim to present a comprehensive view of Diebenkorn's evolution to maturity, focusing solely on the paintings and drawings that precede his 1955 shift to figuration at age 33. Included in the exhibition are 100 paintings and drawings, many of which have never before been publicly exhibited, that offer a full picture of the young artist's achievements. The first Beginnings public program is Music in the Museum with Dr. James Helton on February 8.

Beginning today, studio assistance by art students Emi Frame and Breyanne Urbin will be available in the education space of the exhibition from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, through the end of February. Enjoy painting, sketching, and writing using the activity information provided.
