DESCRIPTION

The Golden State bears the burden of the dreams of the entire nation. A cultural enigma at the edge of the continent, Californians have distinct mentalities and histories that transcend the United States, yet so much of American culture is produced here. Fort Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition devoted to artists representing California as an idea rather than a place.
