“Global Vision: A Survey of World Art” will have its debut session in the University Art Gallery at California State University, East Bay on Monday, Oct. 16. The exhibit will be open that day from 5 to 7 p.m.

It will remain open to the public from Oct. 17 through Jan. 17 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays in the university’s Art and Education Building, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., in Hayward.

"Diversity has always been at the heart of our exhibition program,” said Lanier Graham, gallery director and an art department lecturer. “We have shown masterpieces from Africa, Oceania, North and South America, and Central Asia, China, and Japan, along with masterpieces from Europe and the United States at different times.”

Included will be more than 100 traditional examples from the tribal world, as well as from Japan, China, Southeast Asia, India, Tibet and West Asia.

“This exhibition is a rare chance to see a concentrated survey of 'World Art' in a single gallery,” Graham said. “It provides our students with a special opportunity to experience the richness of our collective cultural and spiritual heritage as a whole.”

Highlights will include a wall of African masks; a major group of Chinese sculpture starting with the Neolithic period and continuing through the Shang, Chou, Han, Tang and Sung Dynasties; famous 19th century prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige; and calligraphy by well-known Zen teachers Bunsho roshi and Suzuki roshi.

The Modern period will be represented by Manet, Renoir, Cassatt, Kandinsky, Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Dali, Duchamp, Pollock, de Kooning, Rauschenberg, Bearden and Warhol.

“This exhibit is a great opportunity for our students to see first hand the types of art they have learned about in the Introduction to World Art History class and the Advanced Survey of World Art class,” said Michael Henninger, chair of the Cal State East Bay Art Department. “Seeing the real thing really improves one's understanding of the art work.”

The pieces come from the collection of the Institute for Aesthetic Development, based in Brentwood, Calif. The oldest piece in the show will be a stone sculpture from 5,000 BCE.

Read about the exhibition in the university newspaper The Pioneer.
