South OC Art Museums

Irvine Museum
18881 Von Karman Ave, Suite 100

Founded in 1992 by Joan Irvine Smith and her mother, the late Athalie R. Clarke, this is the only museum in California dedicated to the preservation and display of California Impressionism or Plein-Air paintings, an art style that flourished in Orange County and all of California from 1890 to 1930. Over a hundred years ago, the splendor of nature fascinated artists and compelled them to paint beautiful paintings. As visitors view the rare and remarkable paintings housed here, people are returned, all too briefly, to a time long ago when the land and its bounty were open and almost limitless.
