Visible Vaults

San Diego Museum of Art
On view through 11.20.2019

The Visible Vaults will recreate part of The San Diego Museum of Art's most carefully guarded area, a place that is invisible to most visitors—the vaults where the thousands of works of art in our collection are stored. Often curators cannot put everything on view that deserves to be displayed; some works of art are too fragile, some are too light-sensitive, and others do not have the proper context in the galleries. However in this behind-the-scenes display, visitors will have the opportunity to discover nearly 300 little-known masterpieces, including works on paper, sculpture, ceramics, cloisonné, snuff bottles, tiles, and paintings. They will be able to open drawers, peek into virtual storerooms, and take the time to sketch and observe some of the great treasures of the collection.

One of the strengths of the Museum’s permanent collection is its print collection. Visible Vaults introduces guests to printmaking techniques used all over the world. In the first iteration, Japanese woodblock prints from the 19th century will be showcased alongside notable prints from Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Additional works from Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol, Henry Moore, Auguste Rodin, Charles Reiffel and Lee Krasner will also be on display.
