“We are fortunate to have a facility like Art City Studios located only a short drive from Los Angeles. It is truly unique, one of less than a handful of sites in the U.S. that combines studio space for about 20 working sculptors, hundreds of tons of rock and stone to supply sculptors from a large regional area the basic material for their work, plus its own on-site gallery”, says Calderón
The Woodland Hills site, home to the newly formulated California Contemporary Sculpture Museum: californiacontemporarysculpturemuseum.org has been continuously exhibiting contemporary sculpture for the past eleven years. Featuring many of California’s leading sculpture artists.
‘The New Stone Age’ was curated by the project’s founder Jeff Phillips (CalArts Alumnus) and Co-curated by Rude Calderón (of Otis College of Art & Design and Art City Sculpture Studios).
Stone as a medium for tools, weapons, worship, shelter, magic and creative expression is as old as human time. It ebbs and flows into different forms of art, in different times and myriad places.
