Current Exhibitions

June 6, 2018 to October 21, 2018
SVMA features public art in Sonoma Plaza for a second season with artworks by Gwynn Murrill, Lisa Reinertson, and Alison Saar. Each of these women sculptors play an important role in evolving the canon of California art and in the craft of sculpture.
Each artwork features a shared concern for the natural world as well as human-animal interests concerning friendship, love, and the parent-child bond.
Free tours exploring the exhibition will be offered on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at 11:45am. Visitors can meet the guides at the SVMA museum front doors and walk over to the square. Admission is free and donations are always welcome.
Presented by the Museum in partnership with the City of Sonoma.

In this exhibition, Amalia Mesa-Bains focuses on the importance of place and memory through botanical prints, mapping images, landscape shadow boxes, altars, folding books and installations. The themes of family geographies and historical displacements of Latino and native peoples are represented through border maps, archival images and native plants. The narratives of human geography help us to see that our private landscapes have always been part of larger public territories beset by histories of change, loss and memory.
