New Photography Exhibition Highlights 70 years of Inland Empire History

The Inland Empire in Southern California, a region of 4.5 million people, is many times ignored and relegated to the but of jokes. While photographers and other artists have used the Inland Empire as a creative lab. The visions of these artists — experimental, hard-eyed, and imaginative — have influenced the course of contemporary art and photography and inspired “In the Sunshine of Neglect: Defining Photographs and Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 to the Present.”

The exhibit, which opened on January 19, and will run until April 28, 2019, is is the first exhibition to survey this remarkable history. Programing to accompany the exhibit includes:
