An Archaeologist’s Eye: The Parthenon Drawings of Katherine A. Schwab

This exhibition provides a glimpse into a world once inhabited by the ancient Greeks by exploring the famed sculptural reliefs of the Parthenon in Athens. Schwab’s experimentation with graphite and pastel results in a unique collection of more than 30 drawings celebrating the Parthenon’s sculptural legacy and the famed mythological battles between the Olympian Gods and Giants, as well as the Sacking of Troy. Runs April 1 to June 5.

Collections in Context: American Art from a Pacific Northwest Collection

This exhibition brings together more than 20 works by American painters, sculptors, and printmakers from a renowned private collection in the Pacific Northwest. From the Hudson River School to American Impressionism, the exhibition provides a strong overview of artistic practice in the United States from the Civil War to the turn of the last century. This presentation, which is split between the Timken Museum of Art in Balboa Park and the University Galleries on the campus of the University of San Diego, includes major works by Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, John LaFarge, John Frederick Kensett, and Frederic Remington, to name a few. Runs July 1 to September 4.

Beat deal in the city. A nice little museum with a big heart. Love the Russian icons and old masters sections.
