Verge Center for the Arts says
The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis will open to the public on Sunday, Nov. 13 featuring a special exhibition of the work of first-generation faculty, but also feature exhibitions of contemporary artists who exemplify the interactive and art-making UC Davis tradition.

Continuing in that tradition, the Manetti Shrem Museum has commissioned for its Grand Opening celebration UC Davis MFA ('11) artist Lisa Rybovich Crallé to create a 1,500 foot long site­-specific sculpture that will loop around the museum's exterior and the surrounding area during the week leading up to the museum's opening. The sculpture is composed of hundreds of individual fabric "links" that will be hand­ painted by Lisa in collaboration with the greater Davis community during a series of free workshops in Davis, Sacramento and the Napa Valley. The opening weekend will also include activities, performances, and projects from artists based around Northern California, and a special tribute will be held for Roland Petersen, and Wayne Thiebaud, who will be turning 96 on November 15th.

Join us during the month of October at one of our public workshops to make your mark on this massive sculpture! The workshops are free and open to people of all ages. No prior art experience necessary. Paints, brushes, and other supplies will be provided. Come prepared to have fun, and dress to make a mess. The sculpture links painted during this workshop will be on view at the museum during the opening weekend. Questions? Contact Ann Andreazzi at ann@vergeart.com, or Susanna Tu at susanna@vergeart.com.
