Tour the Anderson Collection at Stanford University

Join fellow Bay Area Reedies for a tour of the Anderson Collection at Stanford University, one of the world’s most outstanding private assemblies of modern and contemporary American art. The collection is a gift from Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson and Mary Patricia Anderson Pence, the Bay Area family who built the collection over the last 50 years. The family’s holdings have come to be thought of as a collection of collections in that groups of artworks representing a variety of time periods and media are included. 

The collection is anchored in the work of Abstract Expressionists like Jackson Pollock and extends to contemporary painters such as Terry Winters, Sean Scully, Vija Celmins and Julie Mehretu. Major post-war movements represented within the family’s collection and their gift to Stanford include, Color Field Painting, Post-Minimalism, California Funk Art, Bay Area Figurative Art, and contemporary abstract painting. The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is adjacent to Cantor Arts Center.

RSVP is required via email by February 10. Space is limited!
