Cool Art, Cool Setting

Why you must visit Stanford University’s Art Museum

Founded in 1891, Stanford University’s Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts is a dynamic art museum whose collection includes over 44,000 works spanning the globe. New and noteworthy this year is a new and highly acclaimed residency program with Trevor Paglen and live painting sessions by Hope Gangloff. Talks with contemporary artis like Njideka Akunyili Crosby are frequently held, and as with everything else in the museum, are always open to the public and free of charge. The Cantor also boasts the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of Paris, and shouldn’t be missed – especially on a beautiful day. If you’re ready to explore the area even more, make Hotel De Anza your home base.
