2007 Bay Area Treasure Award Luncheon Honoring Wayne Thiebaud

Wednesday, January 31, 2007, 11:00 a.m.

A lifetime achievement award reserved for local artists, the Bay Area Treasure Award honors artists who have defined - and continually redefined - the realm of contemporary art. Join us this year as we honor a Bay Area favorite, Wayne Thiebaud. Often linked with the Pop art movement of the 1960s, Thiebaud is known for his luscious handling of paint and intense color, producing works that are prized as icons of West Coast art. Hosted by the Modern Art Council, SFMOMA's fund-raising auxiliary, the program includes a luncheon and presentations by Steven H. Oliver, chair, SFMOMA Board of Trustees, and Thiebaud himself.
