Special Exhibitions

Monet to Matisse (October 2021 – January 2022)
The first exhibition focused on French Impressionism to come to the Crocker Art Museum, Monet to Matisse: Masterworks of French Impressionism from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens provides a panorama of one of the most revolutionary movements in 19th-century art.

The Candy Store (January 2022 – May 2022)
Held on the occasion of what would be the 60th anniversary of the gallery’s founding, this exhibition is the largest to date on the Candy Store and, as the trailblazing McHugh liked to say, celebrates art with a “kick.”
