Marin Collects: Art/Design From Private Collections
Please note, this event has expired.
Showcase of art and design from the private collections of Marin County residents
In 2018, COM’s commitment to the arts takes shape in the form of new biannual exhibits.
Opening in March, Marin Collects showcases significant art and design from the private collections of Marin County residents.
The inaugural exhibit will feature works on loan from the Blunk Foundation, the Parker family, and the Cella family, by such artists as J.B. Blunk, Frank Gehry, Sam Maloof, Hassel Smith and others.
Marin Collects is intended to celebrate the passion that moves people to acquire art. Just as community colleges draw a diverse group of people, the exhibit seeks to bring unique pieces together in support of sharing an appreciation of the arts. Marin Collects presents a body of work that has never been shown together—work made by artists and designers that are both well-known and emerging. A common thread among the pieces in this exhibition is the unique relationship the artist has to materials used in their practice.
COM’s Fine Arts Gallery hosts five to six exhibits each academic year and serves as a classroom which gives students hands-on training in the fields of exhibition installation and gallery management.
