From Funk to Punk: Left Coast Ceramics
November 11, 2017 – April 15, 2018
From Funk to Punk: Left Coast Ceramics surveys the rich continuing history of California, Oregon, and Washington artists working in a wide variety of aesthetics, scale, and conceptual styles. The exhibition provides a survey of iconic works from the Museum’s collection beginning in the 1950s, to work created in today’s dynamic cultural and artistic landscape, capturing the spirit and innovations synonymous with West Coast art over the last six decades.
From Funk to Punk: Left Coast Ceramics is made possible through support from the Richard Mather Fund.
