Laguna Art Museum Presents “Black and White: Contemporary Art
Laguna Art Museum will present Black and White: Contemporary Art from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation on view from July 2 through October 9. Curated by Foundation Director Billie Milam Weisman, the special exhibition features 30 artworks from the Foundation created by artists living and working in California across different generations.
“We’re pleased to partner with the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and Billie Milam Weisman on this special exhibition, showcasing a unique variety of works from modern and contemporary California artists,” said Julie Perlin Lee, Executive Director of Laguna Art Museum. “The exhibition will celebrate Mr. Weisman’s legacy and passion for the arts, as well as our mission of presenting California art.”
Each of the 30 artworks featured in Black and White will demonstrate a diverse array of artistic approaches, materials, and techniques used by Southern California-based artists over the past half century. The exhibition is a cross-section of works from the Foundation by artists who draw attention to black and white—as the palate and, in some cases, as a theme. Funding for Black and White has been provided by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. Additional funding has been generously provided by Angel and Tom Papa and the Joan B. Rehnborg Exhibition Fund.
On Saturday, July 9 at 6 p.m., Laguna Art Museum will present In Conversation with Billie Weisman, a special event providing exclusive insight into the collection of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation with Billie Weisman and Laguna Art Museum’s Curatorial Fellow, Rochelle Steiner. Join Weisman and Steiner as they engage the exhibiting artists in discussions about the artworks selected, which represent a cross section of the Weisman collection and demonstrate a diverse array of the artistic approaches, materials, and techniques that Southern California-based artists have deployed over the past half century. Ticket registration for In Conversation with Billie Weisman are available at lagunaartmuseum.org/events.
