Ed Ruscha and the Great American West



At best, going to art exhibits is an inspiring and engrossing experience that stays with you long after you’ve left the gallery and museum, affecting you in ways that are hard to quantify. At worst, you stare at some paint splatters, aghast at the fact that this warranted a show and hopefully have a friend to laugh at the whole thing with. What helps you maximize your visit is having some context, which is exactly what the Novato Museum is providing. In this Saturday’s presentation, museum docent Alfred Escoffier will discuss the works by Ed Ruscha currently on exhibit at the de Young Museum through October 9. The exhibition includes 99 works showing Ruscha’s iconic subjects, from gas stations to the Hollywood sign, across a wide range of media. Did you know that Ruscha is originally from Oklahoma? Did you know that he currently serves on the board of SFMOMA? Find out more this weekend.
