Last month UC Davis celebrated the opening of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art on its campus. The 50,000 square foot museum features pieces by Wayne Thiebaud, Manuel Neri and Ruth Horsting, among others. One of the museum's premier exhibits, "Out Our Way," showcases works by the first artists hired to teach at UC Davis in the 1960s. We'll hear how a school known for its agricultural sciences came to house one of the newest visual arts collections in Northern California and what the museum hopes to accomplish with its first exhibitions.
