Always interesting to see view what others consider art. Some was amazing, some was questionable, but I'm not knowledgeable so just enjoyed what I liked and wonder about others. But wide variety of mediums and styles. Something for everyone.

The very best museum in Sacramento. Fabulous changing exhibits. I highly recommend the Crocker Art Museum. Good blending of Crocker Art Museum from the 1800's Gold Rush era to what's modern today.

The Yelland exhibition (fall 2018 through Jan 2019) is extraordinary. I didn't know anything about him, but loved the paintings. Very good early California painting collection. Lots of pottery, but much of it is recent. The original house is pretty well gutted on the interior....More
