Orange County Museum of Art
Orange County Museum of Art's chief curator, Dan Cameron, takes pride in the artists his state has produced from the 20th century to the present. He and his staff showcase a diverse range of modern and contemporary Californian artists as well as art from around the world in an array of exhibitions and a permanent collection. Each exhibition uncovers a different facet of the art world. Past exhibitions have explored modern art between Picasso and Pollock, the changing language of art and design in the mid-20th century, and works by Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol.
Staffers also immerse visitors in their collections through after-hours events and guided tours of the museum's galleries. They also host events for families, during which kids can make artwork in the style of the exhibited artists or attend monthly shows with short films, music exploration, and live entertainment.
