This event has ended.

An exhibition of early work by Robert Arneson (1930-1992), “Founding Funk" traces the artist’s transition from a highly accomplished wheel-based potter to a creator of irreverent and often sexually charged objects in a style that became known as “Bay Area Funk.” Arneson’s Funk period, during which he firmly established himself as a force in the Bay Area art world, lasted until 1967 when he moved to New York for a year. Following his return to California Arneson’s work became almost exclusively figurative, often autobiographical, and, in the decade after 1982, increasingly engaged in social and political critique.
