California Art, Artists, Galleries - California Artwork


California Art includes world-class exhibits, museums, public art and galleries featuring top artists. California art allows visitors, tourists, locals and children, especially, to embrace the the ultimate expression of creative thinking translated to canvas in paintings, in metal, glass and wood sculptures and in ceramics and unique new materials never seen till now. If you have not been bitten by the art bug, start with some easy projects such as viewing the Hollywood Tower at the Walk of Fame or go to the The Getty (free admission) where art & architecture create dynamic effects that must be experienced first hand. The beauty of California's art is that it is accessible, with many museums either offering free admission or having free entry days.
