Display Week 2015's Special Networking Event will be an evening reception at the San Jose Museum of Art. This year's event is generously sponsored by Henkel. Current selections on view in the museum are summarized here.
The museum's historic wing was originally designed by architect Willoughby J. Edbrooke and built as the San Jose post office in 1892, then served as the city's library from 1937 to 1969. The building was then converted by The Fine Arts Gallery Association, reopening as the "Civic Art Gallery". In 1972 the building was named a California Historical Landmark and in 1973 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The "New Wing", comprising the majority of the current exhibition space, opened in 1991. Many of the changing exhibitions at the San Jose Museum of Art focus on the West Coast and California. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, many exhibitions focus on the intersection of art and technology. The hosted reception will be held from 7:00 to 10:00 pm on Wednesday evening, June 3, 2015.
