• Through May 7: Into the Fold: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz collection highlights the diversity, creativity and technical virtuosity of 20th and 21st century ceramics artists working in Japan. The show features artists whose work is inspired by traditional themes as well as those who work in or are influenced by the avant garde. Tensions between form and functionality, traditional and modern, national and international are often evident across works in the exhibition and within individual pieces. Some 40 artists, including many of Japan’s greatest living ceramicists, are represented by 75 works.

This compelling collection of photographs — 40 by Ansel Adams and 26 by Leonard Frank — presents two views of internment and incarceration in the early 1940s and provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of reactionary politics, racism, forced separation and the resulting effects on victims.

The exhibition also includes Japanese objects influenced by the West.

In 2012 the renowned Meissen Porcelain Manufactory in Germany invited Antemann to collaborate with Meissen’s master artisans on a series of contemporary sculptures.

Using the Garden of Eden as her metaphor, Antemann created a contemporary celebration of an 18th-century banquet.

Each tour guest has the unique opportunity to take on the persona of a character in history — or a “real-life rascal” — who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. Never the same tour twice, the all new Gold Fever! tours relive Sacramento’s early days when gold fever ruled amid horrible disasters that threatened fates and fortunes. To spice things up even more, elements of chance are introduced that could change the fate of tour guests. Through the course of the lively tours that meander through Old Sacramento, visitors find out if they successfully escaped the many floods, if they managed to keep their gold dust (or lose it all at the gambling tables) and if they survived the fires, disease and occasional steamboat explosion.
