Join Long Beach Heritage for the
GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
Sunday, February 1, 2015
2:00 to 4:00pm
California State University, Long Beach University Art Museum
The Art Museum curatorial staff will present a multimedia show about the history of the California International Sculpture Symposium that took place on the campus in 1965 and resulted in the installation of nine monumental modern pieces which remain on site.
The art museum is newly renovated and will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Sculpture Gardens in the fall of 2015. The exhibit, "Far Sited", explores the Sculpture Symposium and the recent conservation of the art works, supported by the Getty Institute.
Maps for self-guided tours of the sculptures will be available as will a brief walking tour for those interested.
Also currently on view at the University Art Museum are "A Better Nectar" by Jessica Rath, a group show entitled "Consumed", and "MOCA 8" from the permanent collection.
PARKING: In Parking Structure 1. Purchase a parking pass for $5 at one of the yellow kiosks located in all CSULB lots and display it on your dashboard.
Enter the campus from Atherton Blvd. on Merriam Way. Parking Structure 1 is directly adjacent to the Pyramid and you should park as close as possible to the south end of the building. Exit the parking structure on the east side and walk south toward the University Art Museum, which will be on your left opposite the College of Business. This is about a one block walk. If walking is difficult for you, let us know ahead of time and we will arrange transportation.
