Walk this way

February 6, Curator talk with Diana Daniels: Back to Life

Enjoying art for art’s sake is great, but sometimes context is even better. Imagine walking through a museum with an expert who could tell you what the artists were thinking as they worked. On Saturday, February 6, at the Crocker Art Museum, curator Diana Daniels will conduct a walk-through for the exhibit Back To Life: Bay Area Figurative Drawings, giving history and background to attendees. This exhibit represents an important period from art, in the ’50s and ’60s when a handful of regional artists there were redefining figure drawing with the use of, among other techniques, abstract expressionism. $12; 11 a.m Saturday, February 6. Crocker Art Museum, 216 O Street; www.crockerartmuseum.org.
