Art 1C student, Stephanie Fidomski, at the Crocker Art Museum with her favorite work: Pies, Pies Pies by Sacramento-based artist, Wayne Thiebaud, oil on canvas, 1961.
"My reason for choosing this work among the many other gorgeous artworks is because of its simplicity and the meaning it holds for me. I love baking and cooking for the fun of creating something good and as a way of expressing myself."

Professor O'Brien offers a sequence of undergraduate and graduate courses in theory and criticism, the art of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, and a survey of Latin American and Latina/o art. Dr. O’Brien has lectured locally, nationally and internationally on global feminisms, global modernisms, and the work of under-represented artists. She was the lead editor of the 2012 anthology textbook, Modern Art in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: An Introduction to Global Modernisms, published by Wiley Blackwell and distributed internationally. Elaine’s current research project situates art produced and taught in California’s new public university art departments in the 1960s and ‘70s within the global and local context of that era’s sociopolitical revolutions: a theme that will be explored in her 2015 CAA session titled: Patron of Diversity: The Golden State, the People’s University and the ‘Rise of the Rest.’ In May, 2015, she is presenting a lecture at the NORDIK 2015 art history conference, Mapping Uncharted Territories, in Rekyavik, Iceland titled "Towards a Global Regionalism: Art History at the Crossroads."
