The San Bernardino County Museum announced a new exhibit called Handle with Care, by local Southern California photo-based artist, Fred Brashear, Jr. The exhibit showcases Fred’s extensive research with the San Bernardino County Museum as well as his travels to Mexico and throughout Southern California.
Handle with Care is a special project of the MexiCali Biennial program which researches and explores the use of the Opuntia. By exploring the historical, cultural, and biological uses of the cactus, alternative ideas for its use present themselves to help mitigate the effects of weather-related phenomena due to climate change.
On Saturday, March 18, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., there will be an Artist Talk with Fred. He will discuss the hard skills needed in the art industry, and how to use networking to build an art career. This program is open to the public, regular museum admission applies.
