3 Art Events to Catch this Month in CA’s Capitol


June is here, so it’s time to have some summertime fun. This weekend we’re heading to Sacramento for some warm weather, great food and amazing art shows. Check out these three exceptional art exhibits creating a buzz in California’s capitol city.

Superman Returns
Sac-Town native Mel Ramos is one of the city’s most celebrated artists. His paintings of comic book heroes, such as The Phantom Lady (above), have earned him international acclaim, yet until now a survey of his work has never been held in his hometown. “Mel Ramos: 50 Years of Superheroes, Nudes and Other Pop Delights” at the Crocker Art Museum provides a welcome home; June 2–Oct. 21, 216 0 St., Sacramento, crockerartmuseum.org.

Form and Figure
Artist Sonya Fe brings her contemporary art to Sacramento’s Sojourner Truth Multicultural Arts Museum, with an artist reception this Saturday, June 9. Her Chicano/Chicana style of art captures women in vulnerable and serene moments. Fe will also offer youth workshops each Wednesday for six weeks starting June 6. Class participants must be between the ages of 12 and 17 and will have the chance to learn her unique style directly from the source. Opening June 5, 2251 Florin Road, Sacramento, sojoarts.net.

Walk it Out
Not one for being stuck indoors on a warm evening? Get outside for the monthly Sacramento Art Walk, taking place the second Saturday of each month. Celebrate the city’s local artists and design community. Plus, snag some delicious bites and a glass of wine. Nearly 30 galleries will open their doors and allow the public to feast on the lovely works of art within. June 9 from 6 to 9 p.m., 11th Street at K Street, sacramentoartwalk.com.
