November 4, 2016, 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.

The California Automobile Museum is proud and excited to present Art of the Car starring David Garibaldi to be held on Friday evening, November 4, 2016.

This dinner extravaganza will feature world-renowned artist and car enthusiast David Garibaldi, featuring farm-to-fork cuisine by Diane Wilkinson Catering, artisan cocktails, live entertainment by Ken Koenig and Spare Parts Band, and a silent and LOUD auction (including the art that David produces during his performance). Proceeds from this fabulous fundraising event support the Museum’s many community and education programs and engaging special exhibits.

The California Automobile Museum is thrilled to have David Garibaldi, who is also a car enthusiast, join in support of these efforts.  With his passion and drive, David has helped to raise more than $1.7 million dollars for nonprofits and charities through his high-energy performance and art. This year, their “Bid for a Cause” will fund a large-scale mural for the outside of our museum building. The artist selected for this project is internationally known Shaun Burner, who focuses on mural work and large-scaled paintings mostly working with acrylics and spray enamel. Tickets to this exciting evening are $75 for individuals. VIP Table Sponsorships are still available. To find out more information call 916.442.6802 or CalAutoMuseum.org.

“Claire Falkenstein: Beyond Sculpture”

Through December 31, 2016

Claire Falkenstein (1908 – 1997) was one of America’s most experimental and productive 20th century artists. Relentlessly exploring media, techniques, and processes with uncommon daring and intellectual rigor, she moved from one art center to another, working first in the San Francisco Bay Area, then Paris, and New York, and finally, Los Angeles. Her reputation today rests primarily on her sculpture, which was often radical and ahead of its time, yet she was also an inventive painter and maker of prints, jewelry, glass, films, stage sets for dance, public murals, fountains, and monumental architectural commissions. Although Falkenstein’s extensive oeuvre can appear bewilderingly diverse, her pieces are based on several distinctive structural systems, which became her personal, formal vocabulary. This retrospective exhibition traces the development of Falkenstein’s work both chronologically and geographically through key works from the early 1930s through the 1990s encompassing nearly every media she explored.

“Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection”

Through January 22, 2017

“Highest Heaven” explores a time when art flourished in the Iberian colonial possessions of the Altiplano (high plains) of South American, which stretch from northern Argentina to Peru. Through approximately 107 paintings, sculptures, ivories, objects in silver and furniture, the exhibition traces the development and spread of the Catholic faith through the creation and use of religious art for devotion and instruction. The objects are drawn from the distinguished collection of Roberta and Richard Huber of New York City, built over the course of three decades. CrockerArtMuseum.org
