It’s a rare opportunity to examine the full arc of David Park’s work. Park has long been revered as the originator of the Bay Area Figurative Movement, a movement defined by mid-century artists who abandoned the prevailing style of abstract expressionism in favor of a return to figurative painting.
The free online exhibition will feature seven speakers who will have the floor for seven minutes each. Among the esteemed guests will be David’s daughter, Helen Park Bigelow, and prolific Bay Area painter Wayne Thiebaud.
With this creative offering, SFMOMA is helping to usher in a new age of virtual curation. An innovative era for museums where an appreciation for art, history and culture can extend beyond their brick-and-mortar walls to reach global audiences. A bold shift that will change the future of museums forever.
David Park: 7×7 is a free virtual event that will be open to the public on Thursday, January 14 at 5 p.m. PST. To register, please visit the SFMOMA David Park: 7×7 event page.
