Walnut Creek Neiman Marcus Artwork – Meet the Artists

Artist: Judith Foosaner
Title: Breaking and Entering #12
Year: 2012
Medium: acrylic on paper on canvas
Location: Contemporary – 2nd floor

As noted a couple of days ago, there is plenty of local artwork permanently on display around the new Neiman Marcus store in Walnut Creek. On the press preview tour some of the artists were at the store so I was lucky to able to take photos of four of the artists with their artwork in the background. It was really great to be able to talk with them about their commissioned pieces and how the Neiman Marcus curator was able to place each piece in the most appropriate spot.

A couple of things to be aware of, this artwork is on permanent display, it does not get rotated out over time. Also, in deference to the artwork, Neiman Marcus does not display merchandise in front of the art. That’s pretty incredible as they lose out on display space, but it’s great for the shopper who can appreciate the art better.
