DESCRIPTION

Former Museum Director Jason Wong collected art in all media: painting, sculpture, and works on paper. Most works are of an intimate scale including small sculptures by Claire Falkenstein and delicate etchings by Beth van Hoesen. Not surprisingly for a person trained in two-dimensional graphic design, Wong enjoyed prints and drawings and works on paper. He was also known to have a life-long interest in sculpture. In this selected exhibition from his collection we have glimpses of the fertile Southern California art scene in the 1960s and 70s. Such works as a chevron painting on aluminum by Billy Al Bengston entitled Tom, a watercolor by Keith Crown entitled Taos, and Ed Ruscha's artist's book Every Building on the Sunset Strip.
