California Dreaming: Works by Ruscha, Hockney and Others

A growing part of the McNay’s collection of prints and drawings is a fantastic group of contemporary prints by California artists. The very name California immediately conjures up images of Hollywood, sandy beaches, palm trees, and abundant sunshine. And while some of the prints, by such California artists as David Hockney and Ed Ruscha, do conform to that vision, others show a different side of the Golden State. For instance, Beth Van Hoesen, a consummate printmaker who worked in the Bay Area, asked people she met on the streets of her San Francisco neighborhood, the Castro, to pose for her. Also included in California Dreaming are a number of works by contemporary Latino artists. These printmakers represent a parallel track to that of better-known, more mainstream artists—a track that celebrates the state’s diversity.
