Wayne Thiebaud was among the most iconic artists of our time, elevating ordinary objects to fine art. His paintings of cakes, pies and ice cream cones graced the covers of The New Yorker for a half-century, though his body of work was far more expansive, including landscapes of Yosemite and streetscapes of San Francisco. He was a professor of art at the University of California, Davis (practically founded the department), and lived in Sacramento.
The Crocker presented an exhibit marking his 100th birthday in 2020, but it was on display for only a short time because of the pandemic. He died on Christmas Day 2021, and so the Crocker is reprising the exhibit as Wayne Thiebaud: A Celebration. The exhibition represents the artist’s work in all media, with pieces drawn from the Crocker’s holdings and from the collection of the Thiebaud family — many of which had never been shown publicly until this show.
