Lunchable is a regular feature of the Arts Blog that offers something one can do over a lunch time or short break.

At the very heart of the collection are the works on paper. Through the generosity of artists, the museum serves as a repository for several large print portfolios as well as gifts by individual artists and collectors. Before the quarter ends, catch these prints at UC Davis’ own Native American museum, located conveniently in Hart Hall near the quad on the UC Davis campus. The exhibition is open through June 15.

Among the more charming parts of this exhibition are the screen printed shirts created by UC Davis graduate students as part of their coursework in a class taught by Professor, Native American Studies during winter quarter.  The final works engage with a variety of issues from language expression, political commentary and humor. The exhibition also features a variety of recently acquired works.

The Gorman is open noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and Sunday 2-5 p.m.
