1. GOLDEN LEGACY: Original Art from 65 years of Golden Books.
60 original illustrations from the Little Golden Books series of picture books, which includes work by Richard Scarry, Alice and Martin Provensen, Garth Williams and Mary Blair. Super sweet and nostalgic, it was lovely and kind of exciting to see the original artwork for books I treasured when I was younger.
2. ARTE POPULAR: Mexican Folk Art from the Collection of Pat and Judd Wagner
"Created from a wide array of materials such as clay, plant fibers, wood, metals, cotton, wool, silk, paper, stone, leather, shell, wax, and feathers, the objects are ceremonial and profane, utilitarian and decorative, parodic and whimsical, reflecting communal lives and values. Many of the artists use techniques handed down for generations, often within the same families and villages. The resulting works reveal the artists' connections to their communities, land, traditions, and cultures."
I couldn't find any photos that did any justice to this exhibition. It is positioned at the end of a gallery full of retablos so you suddenly walk from very solemn religious oil paintings into a room full of paper mache skeletons, neon prostitutes and hand carved monster masks. It's hilarious.
