The Great Valley Museum features a permanent museum display that contains over 200 taxidermy specimens and objects from our permanent collection. Our exhibit focuses on the five existing habitats found in California before colonial settlement and agricultural expansion, dated pre-1800's. The displays features plants and animal specimens from the Riparian, Alkali Sink, Oak Woodland, Vernal Pool, and Grassland habitats. In addition, we also showcase a display on the Indigenous Me-Wuk Tribe that inhabited the Central Valley region of California. We hope you enjoy exploring the imaginative exhibits.
Sayaka Ganz: Reclaimed Creations
On view from January 19th through April 23rd, 2022
The amazing sculptures of Sayaka Ganz will be shown at the Great Valley Museum at Modesto Junior College from January 19th thru April 23rd. Sayaka Ganz utilizes reclaimed plastic objects such as discarded utensils, like brush strokes which appear visibly unified at a distance though separated at close proximity. She describes her style as “3D impressionism.” Sculptures in the exhibition include recent installations of animals in motion which are rich in color and energy and create an illusion of form. Her amazing has been displayed at the Hermann Geiger Foundation in Cecina, Italy, and the Isle Gallery, Isle of Man.
