Valverde Exhibition Announced

The late Los Angeles-based photographer and artist Ricardo Valverde (1946-1998) is featured in a career retrospective at the Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM), May 17- July 26, 2014. The exhibition, Ricardo Valverde: Experimental Sights, 1971-1996, is guest-curated by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and highlights more than one hundred artworks spanning a twenty-five-year period of production. The opening reception will take place Saturday, May 17, 4:00-6:00 p.m., and is free to all.
