Museums offer interesting exhibits

SACRAMENTO — In addition to its fascinating Gold Rush past, the Sacramento area is rich with an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and destinations that offers visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science and wildlife treasures all year.

During July many of the 30 members of Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) are offering exciting new exhibits, a sampling of which follows:

Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento displays “Records of Time” closing July 7.

In its final days on display at the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento, “Records of Time” is a powerful exhibition about images and remembrance, where artist Sohyung Choi combines photographic imagery, video projection, light and found objects in installation works that ponder the impermanence of life and the function of memory. The discarded objects she combines with images bear physical traces of time. Having unknown but implied histories they add to a sense of elusiveness, of what can be imagined or remembered but not fully grasped.

For more information visit ccasac.org or call 916-498-9811.

Crocker Art Museum displays “Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami” closing Sept. 29.

Dynamic, innovative and exquisite — origami or folding paper, is not only a sophisticated art form, but it inspires innovative concepts in math and design and inventions in engineering, architecture and technology.

On display at the Crocker Art Museum, this new exhibition explores the rich tradition of paper-folding both in Japan and Europe. To the delight of museum guests, “Folding Paper” features approximately 140 works by more than 50 international artists. This groundbreaking examination of paper as a medium for endless creativity also includes origami-related woodblock prints, photo murals and videos.

For more information visit crockerartmuseum.org or call 916-808-7000.

California State Capitol Museum presents “The Dust Bowl, California, and the Politics of Hard Times” running through May 15, 2014.

The California State Capitol Museum recently debuted a compelling new exhibit that showcases the dramatic series of severe dust storms that swept across the mid-west states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Texas in the 1930s.

The storms, years of drought and the Great Depression devastated the lives of residents living in those Dust Bowl states. Three hundred thousand of the stricken people packed up their belongings and drove to California.

The exhibit examines the cultural, social and political impact the Dust Bowl migrants had on California, and the photographs of Dorothea Lange, songs and lyrics of Woody Guthrie, and storytelling genius of John Steinbeck bring the era and people to life with their dramatic and poignant styles.

For more information visit capitolmuseum.ca.gov or visit 916-324-0333.

Sacramento History Museum presents “Trouble in River City” through 2014.

Imagine a trial in Sacramento that includes such sensational elements as faked kidnappings, beatings and media leaks that captivated the nation and played out during the Great Depression.

The Sacramento History Museum’s new exhibit titled “Trouble in River City” chronicles the long-running criminal trial of 1935 that tells the story of 18 farm labor organizers who were tried for criminal syndicalism – the attempt to overthrow the government by violent means.

Showcased by fascinating trial transcripts, documents, video, photographs and interactive elements, the exhibit will allow visitors to gain an appreciation for the issues of poverty, homelessness, joblessness and the plight of the agricultural worker in 1930s California.

For more information visit historicoldsac.org or call 916-808-7059.

Sacramento Association of Museums is composed of 30 greater Sacramento area museums working in partnership with the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, SAM’s mission is to raise awareness of local museums by giving the community the opportunity to discover California’s fine art, history, science and wildlife treasures.

SAM achieves its mission through implementing cooperative promotions and developing strategic marketing alliances, by encouraging sharing of knowledge and resources among its partner institutions.
