Tour #4

CSULB University Art Museum - Tour

Meet at the Queen Mary Gangplank
Pickup Time: 12:15 PM, Van 1

Join a docent led tour of the museum and highlights of the CSULB world class sculpture collection. 

In the museum’s current exhibition, lauren woods: Monument, the artist will transform the museum into a monument that prompts consideration of the cultural circumstances under which African-Americans have lost their lives to police brutality.

The CSULB sculpture collection was launched in 1965 with the California International Sculpture Symposium, an event patterned after other recently held symposia in Europe. It was the first of its kind in the United States or on a college campus, and a significant experiment in the formal collaboration of art and technology. Each of the invited artists was paired with an industrial sponsor that provided technological assistance in the form of expertise, access to facilities, equipment, and materials. One of the works by Piotr Kowalski was actually created underwater using dynamite.  Since the original nine sculptures were commissioned, the collection has grown to twenty-one works and includes Window Wall for Cal State Long Beach, designed by the light and space artist and Long Beach native, Robert Irwin.

Tour #7

Art Deco Tour - Aboard the Queen Mary
(This tour will repeat on Sunday for a $25 fee)
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

The Queen Mary features some of the grandest, most intricate and beautiful interior designs ever aboard an ocean liner. Influenced by the Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 30s, the interior design includes strong curves and geometric forms representing elegance, glamour, function and modernity.

Art plays a prominent role in the décor of the Queen Mary with elaborate murals, paintings, sculptures and wood carvings found throughout the ship. Leading proponents of the Art Deco movement were commissioned by Cunard to create unique and contemporary pieces of art work, many of which can still be found on the ship today. Some of the most famous works are murals by Doris Zinkeisen, whose work echoed themes of mythology, animals and nature, abstracted into pure form. Today, the Queen Mary is widely considered one of the best examples and landmarks of Art Deco style in the world.
