This Friday, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) is opening their vaults of their museum holdings, to showcase the very best in California landscape art in their first museum of 2014 titled Inspiration Points: Masterpieces of California.

OMCA will be displaying works from artists best known for creating landscapes that offers a representation of California, or simply capture a part of the state in a moment of time. These artists include Ansel Adams, Thomas Hill, David Hockney, Arthur Mathews, Richard Misrach, Albert Bierstadt, Imogen Cunningham, Eadweard Muybridge, Edward Wetson, and Chiura Obata. Inspiration Points will feature approximately sixty of OMCA’s best landscape paintings, photographs, and works, some of which are of majestic scenes, some of wilderness of exploited lands and visions, but all showcasing the artist’s interpretation of California’s landscape, shedding new light on what is now considered to be timeless favorites.

Some of the works featured in the exhibition include Richard Misrach’s capture of the devastation of the 1991 Oakland-Berkeley fire, Thomas Hill’s San Francisco Coast depicting canvas Land’s End, and Eadweard Muybridge’s 19th-century print Falls of the Yosemite from Glacier Rock.

Inspiration Points is the first special exhibition to be featured in the newly transformed Gallery of California Natural Sciences, and will be on view until July 13th.
