Mark & Hilarie Moore have donated a major work by Chicago-based artist Cheryl Pope to The Santa Barbara Art Museum (CA) on behalf and in memory of arts patron Henry Segerstrom, who passed away this year.
The Santa Barbara Art Museum’s collection of the arts of Asia, Europe, and the Americas includes paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, photographs, ceramics, glass, jades, bronzes, lacquer, and textiles. The broad areas in which SBMA holds a significant number of works of exceptional quality include international antiquities from China, India, Greece, Rome, Egypt, and the Near East and 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century art from Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Particular strengths of the collection are 19th- and 20th-century American and European art, contemporary American painting, photography, and the arts of Asia, especially China.
