The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis is committed to making art accessible and open to all. Offering engaging experiences that reflect and serve the UC Davis community, the museum shares the university’s core values of innovative research, interdisciplinary experimentation, and a dedication to educational programming while building on its legacy of exceptional teaching and practice of the arts. Presenting exhibitions and programs year-round, the Manetti Shrem Museum provides an unparalleled cultural resource for students, faculty, visitors and the extended community.

 

Embracing its mission “to cultivate transformational art experiences that inspire new thinking and the open exchange of ideas,” the museum fosters a community of lifelong-learners through one-on-one interactions with world class art, artists, and faculty.

 

There is no better time to see the mission come to life than with our upcoming exhibition Landscape Without Boundaries. Featuring significant works by Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Bruce Conner, Mike Henderson, Robert Hudson, Gladys Nilsson, Wayne Thiebaud, and William T. Wiley among others, the exhibit explores the vital mix of approaches to the idea of the landscape in art represented by artists in and around Davis. Here the landscape inspires a map of an artist’s psychology, becomes the basis of a surrealist image, or the raw material for a freshly invented world. Collectively, this is artwork that seeks the depths of the human spirit and luxuriates in the paradise of the ordinary hillside. It is profoundly attuned to being alive, in this place, at any time.

 

At the Manetti Shrem Museum, we celebrate the spirit that is UC Davis. Education is figuratively and literally “out front” in our award-winning building, where visitors commonly catch sight of students practicing, studying, and learning. With such features as lecture hall with seating for 125, state of the art collections classroom for seminar classes, direct access to the Fine Arts Collection, and most prominently, an indoor-outdoor wet studio for hands-on art making, the museum continues its dedication to the lively spirit of lifelong learning.
