Event Details

Presented over two floors of gallery space, Made in California is a selection of key pieces from the collection of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, among them works by legendary artists such as Ed Ruscha and Ed Kienholz. Weisman was a Los Angeles-based businessman whose passion and eye for contemporary art brought him international renown.

Weisman began collecting in the mid-1950s, just as the Los Angeles art scene began to emerge on a national scale. He was an early supporter of many figures who rose to prominence under the Ferus Gallery, run by Walter Hopps and Kienholz. These LA artists were inspired by their daily lives and surroundings — the local terrain, vibrant sun, beautiful sunsets, blue skies, surfboards, and fast, flashy cars of California culture. Their sphere of influence became known as the Cool School. Weisman continued to collect, later joined by his wife, Billie Milam Weisman, a museum professional and now director of the foundation.
