Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings

To celebrate the 100th birthday of Sacramento’s most renowned artist, the Crocker Art Museum presents Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings. Best known for his tantalizing paintings of cakes and pies, Thiebaud has long been affiliated with Pop art, though his body of work is far more expansive. This exhibition represents the artist’s achievements in all media, with pieces drawn from both the Crocker’s holdings and from the collection of the Thiebaud family—many of which, until now, have never been shown publicly. For the Crocker, the show also continues a tradition of hosting a Thiebaud exhibition each decade, beginning with the artist’s first solo show in 1951, Influences on a Young Painter—Wayne Thiebaud. In 2020, we celebrate the life and career of an artist whose work is beloved not only in California, but internationally.
