Satri Pencak discusses the opening of the new Art Museum of Sonoma County in her latest blog post. The Sonoma County Museum has been reimagined as two separate museums; the original Museum will become the History Museum of Sonoma County, and the new Art Museum of Sonoma County will open Saturday, April 11th, with a gala celebrating its inaugural exhibit, Andy Warhol to Kara Walker: Picturing the Iconic, drawn from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.
Pencak writes, "Art and History, like two siblings who’ve shared a room for years, finally get spaces of their own. It’s not that they’re incompatible; they actually share a lot in common and have great conversations. It’s just that each needs room to grow into their full potential while continuing the conversations—and we all get to benefit."
Collector Jordan D. Schnitzer states, “I am pleased to offer this exhibit at the opening of the new Art Museum of Sonoma County. I encourage people to bring their children to enjoy this art. I can’t talk about art without reinforcing the importance of it being a family thing. By taking children to the Museum you create family time that prompts conversations.”
