Rapunzel just got us in the mood for more. The third floor is where the main exhibition galleries are located. We were lucky to see a couple of the galleries full of art that has been promised to the museum by generous donors. I was not able to take pictures here, but there was plenty more to see in the may other gallery spaces....

|New Gallery Space|
|Portrait of My Father by Stephen J. Kaltenback|
|Untitled (Disasters of War 10) by Gettfried Helnwein|

There are also new gallery spaces dedicated to historical California art...

I wish that I could have stayed longer, but other commitments were calling....and we promised ourselves we would be back often.
On the way out, I stopped into the Museum gift shop and saw a couple of things to add to my Holiday wish list....
|The Crocker Art Museum Collection, Unveiled|
|The Vase Unveiled, The Sidney Swidler Collection of the Contemporary Vessel (This is one of the exhibits we did not have time to see...we are making it back to the Museum next week!)|
