The show, initially slated to come down on March 30, includes both work from artists of the 1930s and contemporary members of the Plein Air Artists of Riverside. “As we look to both past and present works of the Riverside area, this exhibition celebrates the modern development of plein air artists over time, revealing the growth and impact of the Riverside community as a whole,” reads the museum’s webpage on the exhibition. The opening reception for the show is February 6, from 6-9 p.m.
