OCMA Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Art enthusiasts gathered at the Orange County Museum of Art on Oct. 5 to preview the new OC Collects exhibition, curated by OCMA Director Dennis Szakacs. The exhibition features modern and contemporary selections from more than a dozen private collections in the Orange County community. Artworks include paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos spanning classic modern works to art created by emerging artists of the present, with a focus on California artists. After perusing the museum, guests headed to South Coast Plaza for a Champagne reception at Cartier, followed by a dinner at Jewel Court, where dining tables surrounded the circular display outlining OCMA’s history, an exhibit celebrating the museum’s 50th anniversary. OC Collects will run through the end of December. —L.D.
