Like the art museums in San Francisco, a lot of things have occurred in the art museums throughout the Peninsula and San Jose in 2013. They included an exhibition from a legendary photographer, and an annual exhibition, one to be one of the prestigious in the West Coast. And this is what happened during 2013.

1. Cantor Center for the Arts (Stanford): The museum featured works from photographers Lee Friedlander and Richard Misrach, artists Andy Warhol, Dotty Attie, Henri Matisse, and Carrie Mae Weems. There were also exhibitions of historic French works, modernism’s take on beaches and deserts, and advertising in art.

2. DeSaisset Museum (Santa Clara): The museum featured works of contemporary clay, recycled materials, as well as works from Henrietta Stone, Wynn Bullock, Valentin Popov, and Fletcher Baton.

3. San Jose Museum of Art (SJMA) (San Jose): The museum featured works of contemporary Asia in two exhibitions, Greek mythology, works given to SJMA from private collections, works that celebrated the Golden Gate Bridge, and an exhibition with works circling around food and community. There were also exhibitions from photographer Annie Leibovitz and Hung Liu (who also had exhibitions throughout the East Bay).

4. San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles (San Jose): The museum exhibited Folk Indian textiles, chants hangings, and stitch mandalas. Later, there were exhibitions of historic and contemporary textiles of moments of birth and marriage, New York quilts, stunning asymmetrical quilts, and quilts inspired by food. There was also the annual Fiberart International exhibition, the latest platform for innovations in the field of fiber art.
