Last Chance to view Millard Sheets Exhibition - Closes January 4, 2009
Damngorgeous: Millard Sheets and his Southern California Legacy has been a popular exhibit at Oceanside Museum of Art since September. But, sadly all exhibitions have to come to an end and this one closes Sunday, January 4, 2009. The Los Angeles Times wrote a great review of the show that drew visitors all the way from Los Angeles.
Not only did Sheets play a major role in bringing the art of California to the national arena, he was a prominent teacher at Chouinard Art Institute, Scripps College, Claremont Graduate School and Otis Art Institute. He made a lasting impact with the expansive exhibition program he directed at the Los Angeles County Fair that introduced millions of Californians to the finest American, European, and Asian arts and crafts. Sheets’ artwork can be found in over 46 museums including the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others.
I hope you get the chance to see this world class exhibition before it closes.
