“My imagination will attempt the future…all dreams are in us Prophetic!”
– Sam Francis
As we embark on a new journey together in 2024, we extend our best wishes and appreciation of your ongoing support for Sam Francis’s legacy — encompassing his innovative spirit and oeuvre. We are filled with gratitude and appreciation for all the educational activities and programs this past year in celebration of Sam’s 100th birthday centennial (1923–1994). Thank you to everyone who helped spread the good cheer commemorating this milestone, especially a huge shoutout to the staff at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and all our collaborators (curatorial team Richard Speer, Hollis Goodall, and Leslie Jones) for the “Sam Francis and Japan: Emptiness Overflowing” exhibition and multitude of programs they organized (with special thanks to Elizabeth Gerber and Ravi GuneWardena).
