Closely Considered - Diebenkorn in Berkeley

This exhibition brings back the work of Richard Diebenkorn, one of the most influential painters of the last 50 years. He exhibited his work at the Art Center in the 1950s and held his first major exhibition of drawings here in 1968. This exhibition features more than 42 intimate works by Richard Diebenkorn and key artists of the Bay Area Figurative Movement including David Park, Elmer Bischoff, Frank Lobdell, Nathan Oliveira, James Weeks and Joan Brown.

This exhibition will be complemented by a series of programs. View the full listing of programs on our website.

Funds for this exhibition were generously provided by: Stephen & Susan Chamberlin, Jacobs & Co., James J. Curtis, Harry W. & Mary Margaret Anderson Foundation, Mechanics Bank, Gruen Gruen + Associates, William N. & Kathryn E. Keller, Ellengale Toki & Owen Oakley and Blick Art Materials.
Art Center Launches New Identity and Website

The Richmond Art Center has launched a new logo and identity that reinforce the heart of our work -- exhibitions, education and traveling Art in the Community programs. Everything we do at the Art Center continues to breathe life into our founder, Hazel Salmi's, original vision: That within every person lives an artist.

This new identity features prominently on our newly redesigned and revamped website, which aims to reach a broader audience of people, including Spanish-speakers, and help them learn about our exhibitions, free events, classes and programs. As we look to the future, we're elevating the quality of all we do -- from the level of exhibitions the Center presents to our accessibility to diverse communities.

Here are a few website features that we think you'll enjoy:
Take a look around and let us know what you think. We hope you enjoy these improvements!
