The Irvine Museum
Dedicated to the preservation and display of California art of the Impressionist Period (1890-1930), The Irvine Museum is embracing a principal role in the education and furtherance of this beautiful and important regional variant of American Impressionism that has come to be associated with California and its remarkable landscape. The Irvine Museum invites you to share this experience and to enjoy the splendor and power of art as it relates directly to our beloved California.
The Irvine Museum Collection was generously donated to the University of California, Irvine in November 2016. The campus’s largest single gift of art to date, it has initiated the process of constructing a museum at UC Irvine. Find out more.
