Long Beach Museum of Art debuts new Anderson House installation pieces
Inside the Anderson home the museum has installed a new display case showcasing revolving ceramic pieces from its permanent collection.
LONG BEACH, CA.- The Long Beach Museum of Art has created several new installation pieces that are now available for public viewing inside and outside the historic Elizabeth Milbank Anderson home. The exterior piece, entitled Sign of the Pacific, was installed on the west side of the Anderson house. Created by modernist artist Claire Falkenstein, this piece now joins two other exterior works created by the artist. This includes Falkenstein’s Structure and Flow fountain, which is the centerpiece of the patio for the museum’s restaurant Claire’s at the Museum and named after the artist, and a sculpture piece entitled Point as Set #16 located in front of the historic house.

Inside the Anderson home the museum has installed a new display case showcasing revolving ceramic pieces from its permanent collection. Generously supported by Eve Kilger, art patron and a museum board member, the first collection on display is a selection of colorful French Sarreguemines pottery including fruit plates, compotes, tureens, and serving dishes adorned with figs, apples, pears, plums, cherries, strawberries, and flowers. The pottery origins date back to 1790 in the Lorraine region of France. Also on view are late-20th century ceramics from the Melba and Al Langman Collection located on the second floor and a new selection of paintings from the permanent collection including Philodendrons on Parade, 1956, by Robert Frame; Exhibition, 2000 by Barrie Goshko; Milk Toast Manor, by Fern Bowen, and Yellow Still Life, 1958 by Jean Clad.

“The Museum continues to provide restaurant patrons with a unique dining experience among artworks inside and outside this wonderful home,” said Ron Nelson, executive director of the Long Beach Museum of Art. “They can also enjoy these new pieces with an unbeatable view overlooking the water on the newly expanded patio. The museum looks forward to hosting new and returning visitors as they continue to expand their exhibitions throughout their campus.”
