A Brief Look Back


February 19-may 27, 2022


Experience a snapshot of OMA’s exhibition history with a selection of works from the museum’s permanent collection. Celebrating work by Southern California artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, OMA’s exhibitions have spanned the gamut of styles and media from representational to abstract, traditional to surreal–but always exploring the relevant, engaging, and truly remarkable artwork of Southern California's community and art history. This exhibition will provide a peek into ten of OMA’s historic exhibitions through work artwork by Ethel Greene, Kai, DeLoss McGraw, Marjorie Nodelman, Marcos Ramírez ERRE, Roland Reiss, Allison Renshaw, Nicholas Samaras, Italo Scanga, and Durre Waseem.

Durre Waseem, Meet me by the pepper tree, 2021, Oil on canvas, 27.5" x 29.5".
