DESCRIPTION

All Things Bright & Beautiful is a traveling exhibition comprised of fifty-eight important California Impressionist paintings from the collections of The Irvine Museum.

This landmark exhibition was originally organized in 1998 and at that time toured museums across the country: opening in New York; continued to Chicago; Tennessee; and Oakland, California.

Two years ago, a group of museums in New England requested an exhibition of some of our works. It was decided to reorganize this exhibition and tour it once more. This time around, the show toured in six museums: it opened in New Britain, CT; and continued to Katonah, NY; Glen Falls, NY; Fitchburg, MA; Dayton, OH; and Columbus, GA. Now, after nearly two years, it comes home to The Irvine Museum.

The Irvine Museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of California art of the Impressionist Period (1890-1930).  A regularly scheduled weekly docent tour is offered to the public every Thursday, at 11:15. For school tours please contact Dora James, Curator of Education.
