Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings from the Escalette Permanent Collection of Art!

Design by Henry Littleworth. Todd Hebert, Less is More, Lithograph, 2004. Gift of Cliff Benjamin.


2019 has been an exciting year for the Escalette Collection! Here are some of the highlights:

  • A generous gift from the Ellingson Family allowed us to develop our ceramics collection by purchasing seminal works by prestigious ceramicists based in southern California. 
  • Our Spring 2019 exhibition, New Looks: Recent Acquisitions from the Escalette Collection, displayed contemporary pieces from our new acquisitions. 
  • As part of a campus-wide interdisciplinary project La Frontera/The Border: An Interdisciplinary Examination, the Escalette Collection installed two exhibits of recently acquired work about borders. A number of public events encouraged the campus and wider community to examine controversial issues around borders.

Peace and joy to you and your families this holiday season.
