A never-before-seen collection of works by contemporary art legends like David Hockney, Helmut Newton and Jean-Michel Basquiat is headed to the Bakersfield Museum of Art. The exhibition, titled “On The Edge,” is comprised of more than 150 objects from the private collection of LA-based art enthusiasts Joan and Jack Quinn. In advance of the exhibition’s opening on Sept. 30, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke to Joan Quinn about the close friendships she enjoys with many of these artists and why she wants to exhibit their works here in the Central Valley.  


Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
