Of the exhibition, AAM Director and Chief Curator Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson comments: “It is a privilege to host this diverse exhibition at the AAM and to collaborate with the staff and the artists of Anderson Ranch. The Ranch has a remarkable history in this valley, and fosters the artistic practices of so many who attend to study, teach, share, and participate in the extremely rare and vital community environment that it embodies.” Anderson Ranch Director Hunter O’Hanian adds: "This is just another wonderful example of how the cultural organizations in this valley work together to help enhance our community. The work selected showcases just a few of the hundreds of artists who are associated with the Ranch."
