“The works featured in this exhibition are so iconic, that they could each be the star of their own show,” says Roxana Velásquez, Maruja Baldwin Executive Director of The San Diego Museum of Art. “Gauguin to Warhol offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the story of modern art told through its finest examples. The exhibition exemplifies our ongoing commitment to bringing outstanding cultural experiences to San Diego.”
