The Crocker Art Museum is pleased to present Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings, an extensive, celebratory retrospective featuring the full range of the Sacramento artist’s achievements on canvas and on paper in an exhibition on view at the Crocker from October 11, 2020 to January 3, 2021.

Opening shortly before Thiebaud’s 100th birthday, the career-spanning exhibition of 100 objects made over more than 70 years (1947-2019), is the largest survey of Wayne Thiebaud’s work in two decades. Works drawn from the Crocker’s holdings and the collection of the Thiebaud Family and Foundation, many of which have never been shown publicly, as well as the artist’s newest body of work, circus clowns, reveal an extraordinary, expansive practice. Accompanied by a full-color, richly illustrated publication with fresh scholarship by Crocker Art Museum’s Associate Director & Chief Curator Scott A. Shields and others asserts that Thiebaud’s body of work is singular and visionary, informed by memory, tradition, and imagination.
