The artists in this exhibition are addressing these issues. Featuring work by: Jackie Amezquita, Sula Bermúdez-Silverman, Narsiso Martinez, Nikki McClure, Sara Rosenblatt, Chip Thomas.
The Fullerton College Art Department is one of the select few college art departments in the nation can boast of a viable and prestigious Artist in Residence program. When California artist Wayne Thiebaud helped launch the first residency in the early 1970’s, the Art Department perhaps had no idea that a new chapter in its history was about to be written. Who really knew then that this “happening” would grow into the most important and defining tradition of the department? Decades later, this yearly event continues to inspire not only students and staff, but also the local art community. We continue to welcome top-flight national and international artists who represent a wide range of styles, themes and issues in their work. The impressive list of guest artists include Miriam Schapiro, Gronk, Lisa Congdon, and Stephen Silver, just to name a few.
OUR COLLECTION, OUR PERMANENT BLISS
The Fullerton College Art Department is indeed very proud to be in the possession of a very fine and envied collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and other objets d’art. As I wandered through our collection late last spring, I was immediately struck by the overall beauty of this modest, but precious collection of visual surprises. The Fullerton College Art Collection exemplifies what a college art collection should: education, inspiration, and the ability to move us all.
