Recent Acquisitions from the Northwest Coast

Oct 3 - Dec 8

With our upcoming campus relocation and expansion, the C.N. Gorman Museum permanent collection has been growing faster than ever. This exhibition features a selection of recently acquired works from the Pacific Northwest Coast. The majority of the collection is based on donations by our exhibiting artists, UCD faculty and the general public, with some pieces purchased from donor and membership support. Works in the collection reflect several different mediums and most have been created since 1990. The collection is accessed for university teaching and research, and is regularly exhibited at the C.N. Gorman Museum and through loans to the UCD Chancellor’s Residence and other institutions.
