80 North: Berkeley, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA)

update/p.285; also an update of these former blog posts

The dramatic new incarnation of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) is now open downtown at 2155 Center Street/Oxford Street.  Read my detailed blog post about it at Visit Berkeley. 

A new exhibit, "Berkeley Eye:  Perspectives on the Collection," runs through December 11, 2016.  It draws from the University of California, Berkeley's extensive art collection and is presented in thematic groupings.

Among the standouts are Andy Warhol's 1964 "Race Riot," Alexander Calder's 1926 "Circus Scene," and Richard Serra's 1972 "Circuit" litograph.  Some of my other favorites are:

"The Finding of Moses," 1924, James Ensor
