GCAC Director/Chief Curator John D. Spiak with Maria Elena Gonzalez and Dr. Justin Walsh

Yesterday afternoon we had a nice surprise visit to GCAC by New York based artist Maria Elena Gonzalez and Dr. Justin Walsh, Assistant Professor, Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Art at Chapman University. The artist was in town to present as part of the Visual Thinker Lecture Series at Chapman University.

We had the pleasure of touring these two outstanding individuals through our entire institution, sharing with them our current exhibitions, programs and philosophies of engagement.

Like GCAC exhibiting artists Matthew Moore and Braden King, who have created the current Cumulus installation in our main gallery, Maria Elena Gonzalez is a prestigious Creative Capital grantee. She is actually one of the grantees from the inaugural year of Creative Capital granting in 2000.

It seems GCAC is becoming a magnet for Creative Capital artists, and we couldn’t be happier!
