The mission of the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is to inspire the imagination and ignite critical dialogue through art and film.The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is the visual arts center of the University of California, Berkeley. Through art and film programs, collections and research resources, it aspires to be locally connected and globally relevant, engaging audiences from the campus, community, and beyond. One of the largest university art museums in the United States, BAM/PFA opened the doors of its distinctive Modernist building on the south side of the UC Berkeley campus in 1970. BAM/PFA’s diverse exhibition programs and its collections of more than 16,000 objects and 14,000 films and videos are characterized by themes of artistic innovation, intellectual exploration, and social commentary, and reflect the central role of education in BAM/PFA’s mission.
The museum has added Schoultz’s “Black Flag” (2011) – pictured below – and Umbrico’s “Mountains, Moving #15” (2014) to its permanent collection.
We congratulate both Andrew and Penelope on this incredible milestone. For more information about either artist, or available works, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
