The exhibition presents 138 outstanding works of art from private collections throughout the State. Focusing on American and European art, the exhibition includes paintings, sculpture and significant decorative artworks from the 16th through the mid-20th century. Showcasing art and collections that are not otherwise available to the public, the exhibition provides opportunities to learn about the importance of private collections to cultural vitality, collecting philosophies and the art of connoisseurship. Additionally, State of Excellence will bring new recognition to the depth and breadth of collecting in the State today. 

This exhibition is funded in part by Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
