The University Art Museum is excited to celebrate the grand opening of our new plaza entrance and permanent collection gallery with three new exhibitions. Please join us for a public reception on Saturday, January 31, 2015, from 6-8pm.

Jessica Rath: A Better Nectar

January 27 – April 12, 2015

Artist Jessica Rath contemplates how human survival is impacted by bees’ vulnerability to the artificial extremes that we have brought about by our reliance upon monoculture farming. Specifically, she addresses the tender symbiosis between native bumblebees and local flora in an expansive, multi-sensory installation of sculpture, light, and sound.


January 27 – April 12, 2015

Curated by the CSULB Museum Studies program, Consumed artists China Adams, Jedediah Caesar, Gabriel Kuri, Mary Mattingly, and Camilo Ontiveros explore the past, present, and future implications of mass consumption. By upholding the position that consumerism is one of the major causes of an environmental crisis, the exhibition simultaneously critiques and acknowledges the compulsive, cooperative relationship that exists between consumerism and society today.


The first exhibition in the new permanent collection gallery will showcase the University Art Museum’s first edition prints of the famed portfolio Eight by Eight to Celebrate The Temporary Contemporary, gifted to the museum by Gordon F. Hampton, veteran trustee of the Museum of Contemporary Art and an important benefactor of the University Art Museum. Andy Warhol and Sam Francis, two artists who contributed to the MOCA portfolio, will have additional work displayed in this exhibit from recent gifts to the UAM from The Andy Warhol Foundation and The Sam Francis Foundation.

All events are free and open to the public. For a list of related exhibition programming click here.
