The University Art Museum offers tours for CSULB students, K-12 school classes, college classes, and community groups interested in visiting the UAM. Tours are conducted by the UAM Docents, who provide a variety of meaningful experiences to accommodate the diverse needs of our visitors.
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.

Jud Fine and Barbara McCarren: AND/OR
Sixteen collaborative artworks by McCarren/Fine will be on view in AND/OR. In their long-running collaborative endeavor, Continental Edge Dwellers, McCarren/Fine address land (the beach), water (the sea), and the line of division (the coastal shore). To dwell on the continental edge is to occupy some of the most exclusive and expensive space on the planet, as well as the most fragile and threatened. Unique conditions arise at the edge to affect individuals living there, but also the entire world. For both artists, the impenetrability of the sea versus the intimacy and comfort of a land-based society speaks metaphorically to human constraint and provides the two with an infinite field for imaginative expanse. Two works from their Currency series will be re-created for the first time in Southern California. In these works, the artists consider global conflicts and economic intrigues through the mandala configurations of facsimile currencies.
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.
