Steeped in memories both personal and cultural, the art of Wayne Thiebaud is comfortingly familiar and evokes reflection on our own experiences with the people, places, and foods we love. Thiebaud is best known for his tantalizing paintings of desserts and has long been associated with the Pop Art movement. Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings celebrates the artist’s 100th birthday through 100 works representing the artist’s achievements in all media through an array of subjects.

Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings is organized at the McNay Art Museum by René Paul Barilleaux, Head of Curatorial Affairs; and Lauren Thompson, Assistant Curator.
