When artist Jennie V. Cannon visited Berkeley in 1907, she wrote, “I could not believe my eyes—there were artist groups and displays everywhere—so many fine artists that this place surpasses San Francisco as the art capital of the West.” Coinciding with the opening of the new U.C. Berkeley Art Museum, the Berkeley Historical Society exhibit explores over a century of hopes, dreams, successes and setbacks of Berkeley art museums and galleries.
Admission free; donations welcome; wheelchair accessible. Telephone: (510) 848-0181. Regular hours: Thurs.–Sat., 1 pm–4 pm. berkeleyhistoricalsociety.org
