Artist Wayne Thiebaud
Artist and Sacramento State alumnus Wayne Thiebaud was honored with a special reception Feb. 9 in the University Library Gallery where his works are on display through March 6. A highly-respected contemporary artist, Thiebaud offered his insight on the “special worlds” artists create.
The evening included remarks by University President Alexander Gonzalez and Library Gallery Director Phil Hitchcock.
The collection, from a pair of anonymous donors, covers Thiebaud’s works from 1948 to 2004, when the collection was donated to the University. The project was inspired by the Destination 2010 initiative launched by Gonzalez, Hitchcock says.
The goal is to have the collection travel around the country under the Sacramento State banner.
