Lial A. Jones, Director of the Crocker Art Museum, and Scott A. Shields, Associate Director & Chief Curator of the Crocker Art Museum, have written to inform me that Escaping Central Park, from the "New York City Wildlife" series, was selected to be included into the 2015 Art Auction that benefits the Crocker Art Museum in the capital city of Sacramento, California. Prior to the auction on Saturday, June 6, the print will be displayed in the Museum's galleries commencing May 16, as well as published in the Art Auction 2015 catalog. The Crocker Museum is the longest continuously-operating art museum, as well as the first public art museum in the West, and plays host to one of the State's premiere collections of California art.
The Museum was established in 1885 and is the only museum in the Sacramento region accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), a recognition given to less than 800 of the nation's 17,500 museums. Currently, the Museum houses two of my works in their permanent collection; Visiting The New York Public Library, and Leaving Subway At 23rd Street. For more information about the Crocker Art Museum, please visit their Web site at www.CrockerArtMuseum.org. To purchase tickets for this event, please visit their Tickets & Info page.
