OMCA opens the vaults to showcase the very best in California landscape art from the museum’s holdings, including works by Ansel Adams, Thomas Hill, David Hockney, William Keith, Arthur Mathews, Richard Misrach, Thomas Moran, and more. The first special exhibition to be featured in the newly transformed Gallery of California Natural Sciences, Inspiration Points: Masterpieces of California Landscape explores the human presence on the landscape through approximately 60 of OMCA’s best landscape paintings, photographs, and works on paper. From majestic scenes of unspoiled wilderness to exploited lands and dystopic visions, the exhibition showcases how artists have interpreted the landscape at particular moments in time. Highlighting important recent acquisitions while also shedding new light on timeless favorites, the exhibition examines the changing attitudes toward the environment over time, and provides a surprising investigation of California’s natural world.
