Located on the campus of Chapman University in Orange, California, The Guggenheim Gallery was built with a gift from Robert and Shirley Guggenheim in 1975. The gallery is part of the Wilkinson College Department of Art and boasts successful partnerships with many community arts organizations including Southern California Artists, Orange Unified School District and the Orange Art Association. Chapman University organizations also hold receptions in the gallery.
Have you ever wondered what kind of artwork professional artists collect or what interconnectedness or relationships artists have with other artists?
