Painter Darren Waterston spoke to a group of high school students at the Fresno Art Museum. He talked about his previous work, and how he pursued art after leaving high school in Fresno.

And for the weekend, let’s take a look at a recent aquisition at the Fresno Art Museum: Just added to FAM’s permanent collection is a piece from Fresno native Darren Waterson. He now lives and works in New York City, but he got his early art education at the museum. The new piece is called “LAST DAYS (Gabriel)”.
