In the news: Jackson Pollock painting found in garage?!

A man apparently found a painting allegedly done by Jackson Pollock in his garage. When the Arizona man called an auctioneer to appraise a signed Laker poster valued at $300, the auctioneer stumbled upon a painting possibly worth 15 million. The tale and provenance involve a New York Socialite, a Scottsdale garage, and a tenacious art appraiser. It seems as though the Laker fan may have found himself a real slam dunk. For the news story, please read CNN’s coverage here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/12/us/lost-jackson-pollock-painting-garage-trnd/index.html

Review: Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Taking a Trip Figuratively Speaking! By Leticia Marie Sanchez Despite the Seismic retrofitting currently taking place at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, this gem of a museum is well worth a visit due to the strength of its permanent collection and its innovative, thought-provoking exhibitions.

Auguste Rodin’s “The Walking Man” greets visitors as they enter the museum through the Ludington Court. Aristide Maillol; Bather Putting Up Her Hair; 1930; Sculpture; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Bequest of Wright Ludington  One not-to-be missed work is Christian Marclay’s Video Installation “Telephones.” This riveting 7-minute work reveals the hopes, fears, and drama behind the incessant ring of a telephone. Drawn from more than a 100 films, this work, produced in 1995, includes images of actors ranging from Humphrey Bogart and
