It is almost inconceivable how much the work of American artists has changed in the past 250 years. This mind-boggling evolution is brilliantly presented by three renowned San Diego museums…The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The San Diego Museum of Art and the Timken Museum of Art. These classy museums have pooled their art treasures for a knockout show.
