LOVE (amber), 2020 Bronze foil print on amber acid-free cardstock 14” x 11” Edition of 100 + 20 APs
By Alexandra Grant Printed by Maggie Lomeli Curated by Yasmine Zodeh
This limited edition of prints was made by artist Alexandra Grant as part of a special collaboration with the fashion house Oscar de la Renta. Invited by curator Yasmine Zodeh, Grant has created a series of four prints in colors inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s spring/summer 2020 collection. The charitable beneficiaries of these grantLOVE prints will vary as the exhibition travels to different locations, and currently is benefiting the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA). These prints are available for pick-up at the grantLOVE x OCMA pop-up shop.
The Orange County Museum of Art enriches the lives of a diverse and changing community through modern and contemporary art. The museum opened in 1962 as the Balboa Pavilion Gallery by thirteen visionary women. With a focus on modern and contemporary art, their efforts were well received and the museum enjoyed recognition from coast to coast. In 1968 the institution became known as the Newport Harbor Art Museum and in 1972, moved to a nearby, larger location. Interest and support continued to grow, as did its collections and exhibitions and in 1977, the museum opened its doors on San Clemente Drive. In 1997 the museum was remodeled and renamed the Orange County Museum of Art. In June 2018, the museum closed its doors in Newport Beach, and in October 2018 opened its temporary location in Santa Ana in South Coast Plaza Village where the museum will operate as it builds a permanent home at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The grantLOVE project is pleased to collaborate with OCMA in creating the grantLOVE x OCMA Fund for Artists, which will support the acquisition of new work by female-identified and non-binary artists to the museum’s permanent collection. The grantLOVE x OCMA pop-up shop is held in conjunction with Alexandra Grant’s exhibition at OCMA, Telepathy is One Step Further Than Empathy, and both are organized by Senior Curator Cassandra Coblentz. www.ocmaexpand.org
