This class has been postponed - please call (415) 927-0960, ext. 230 for more information

From the first cry of “Gold” in 1848 to the aftermath of World War II, we shall survey some of the painters and sculptors who responded to changing cultural patterns in the Bay Area. Set up as a nonlinear survey, the class focuses on the highlights: the Arts and Crafts Movement of 1890-1920, the Society of Six, the California colorists, and the Bay Area’s abstraction and figurative art, especially that of David Park and Richard Diebenkorn. Close attention will be paid to the large body of sculpture by Ruth Asawa and her commitment to the arts. A map for a self-guided tour of her work will be distributed. We’ll finish with Wayne Thiebaud: Pop or Not? Suggested preparation: the exhibit at the de Young Museum on Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years (ends Sept. 29).
