            In early 2011 we visited artist Betye Saar in her studio. Saar was part of the unique support system of African American artists, curators, scholars, and gallerists in Southern California from 1960 to 1980. She began her career in interior design, but later discovered printmaking through a program at Long Beach State. Her investigations in assemblage soon followed. (Run time: 4 min.)

Now Dig This! comprises 140 works from 35 artists that have rarely been shown in a museum setting and includes early pieces by now well-established artists as well as works once considered "lost." The exhibition will be up October 2, 2011-January 8, 2012.
