CSULB OUTDOOR SCULPTURE COLLECTION
The CSULB Outdoor Sculpture Collection is situated throughout the 320−acre beautiful, tree−shaded campus. The collection is open to all—campus community and guests. In 1965, CSULB sculpture professor Kenneth Glenn and artist Kosso Eloul organized the California International Sculpture Symposium. Patterned after other recently held symposia in Europe, the Long Beach symposium was the first event of its kind in the United States or on a college campus. More importantly, it was a significant experiment in the formal collaboration of art and technology. Each of the invited artists (selected from a worldwide roster of distinguished sculptors) was paired with an industrial sponsor who provided technological assistance in the form of expertise, access to facilities, equipment, and materials.

Frank Brothers: The Store that Modernized Modern
Celebrating a little-known chapter in the history of California modernism, the University Art Museum at CSULB presents Frank Bros.: The Store that Modernized Modern. On view from January 28–April 9, 2017, the exhibition relates the story of Southern California’s largest and most prominent mid-century retailer of modern furniture and design. Based in Long Beach from 1938–1982, Frank Bros. embodied the optimistic post-war ethos of the American consumer, bringing fresh and exciting designs to the public not only through well-sourced inventory but with an innovative program of advertising, mailers, exhibitions and off-site custom interiors. As an exemplar of California modernism, Frank Bros. fueled and shaped the market for good design.
The University Art Museum is fortunate to have received several important artworks from dedicated supporters over the last several years. Recent Acquisitions is an opportunity for the community to experience these new collection gems.
