Getting ready for the holidays, the Hilbert Museum has JUST opened this new exhibition in our hallway space: "Good Tidings We Bring: Christmas Cards from the Arthur Millier Collection" -- our first exhibition curated by a Chapman student!
Art history senior Caroline Spogli '20 did a wonderful job curating this grouping of beautiful original prints and drawings that were sent as Christmas cards by artists to Arthur Millier, who served as the highly influential art critic for the Los Angeles Times from 1926 to 1956.
The cards are by such highly regarded artists as Millard Sheets, Walt Kuhn, Eyvind Earle, Gladys Brown Edwards, Maynard Dixon, Mildred Bryant Brooks, Paul Darrow (a storied Laguna Beach artist who just passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 98), Marc Chagall, Reuven Rubin, Georges Rouault and others.
Come see this new exhibition and get into the festive spirit! The Hilbert Museum is grateful to Michael and Susan Rivard for their generous donation of the Arthur Millier Collection to us -- and now we all get to share in a small portion of this outstanding collection.
HOLIDAY CLOSURE: The Hilbert Museum is closed on Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday. We re-open for regular hours (11am-5pm) on Saturday, Nov. 30. See you soon!
