Valley Vista: Art in the San Fernando Valley, ca. 1970-1990 examines for the first time the unique contribution of the San Fernando Valley to Los Angeles’ art history.  The exhibition and its accompanying catalog look beyond the stereotypes of the Valley as little more than a suburban cultural wasteland, and, instead, offer an alternative narrative documenting the Valley’s unrecognized yet substantial role in LA’s emergence as a center of contemporary art activity.

This exhibition consists of figures, altars, masks and images of San Simon/Maximón, a revered folk saint of Guatemala, who is treated with great deference for his abilities to bestow blessings as well as grave misfortune.  Curated by Peri M. Klemm and Bill Mercer with students from Exhibition Design (Art 342/542), this show features the renowned collection of Jim and Jeanne Pieper and will present various depictions and guises of this unique syncretic folk  saint.  The exhibition opening will coincide with San Simon's feast day when he appears in processions and his altars are renewed with offerings of tobacco, alcohol, incense, clothing, money, candles, and food.
