The La Jolla School of Arts played a significant role in the acceptance of new modes of painting and sculpture in Southern California, winning a beachhead for contemporary art in the 1960s amongst a largely conservative community. As part of the Art Center in La Jolla, now known as the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, the school was designed with ocean view studio-classrooms and emphasized the search for a personal contemporary aesthetic. During its short life, this cutting edge institution drew artists from all over the nation as students, educators and as artists-in-residence. This exhibition focuses on the work of six respected artists who were all members of the School’s faculty and features the paintings of Don Dudley, Fred Holle, Sheldon Kirby and Guy Williams, along with the ceramics of Rhoda Lopez and the ceramics and paintings of Malcolm McClain. These artists represent the core of the School's dynamic faculty, brought together by the Art Center during a pivotal time in its development as an institution devoted to contemporary art.
