‘New Reflections’ art exhibit features local youth

As if you really needed a reason to visit Crocker Art Museum in downtown Sacramento, now there’s a local reason through Feb. 23.

Fourteen paintings created by Nevada County Juvenile Hall wards are on display at the museum.

For the “New Reflections: Paintings By Youth Incarcerated at the Nevada County Juvenile Hall” exhibit, the youths studied painting styles of five contemporary Californian artists and then imitated the styles in regional and personal themes.

This is the second Juvenile Hall show in that many years at the Sacramento museum.

A reception for “New Reflections” will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Jan. 18 at the museum. Admission to the museum will be waived.

Other viewing hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays except Thursdays when the museum stays open to 9 p.m.

Museum admission is $6 general, $4 for seniors 65-and-older, $3 for students and free for children 6-and-under.

The museum is at 216 O St. near the Capitol building. Call (916) 264-5423 for more information.
