THE CENTURY GUILD MUSEUM OF ART
The Century Guild Museum of Art is dedicated to providing a historical context to popular culture, primarily by exhibiting Art Nouveau and Symbolist artworks 1880-1920. Founded in 1999 as an art gallery, the personal mission of founder Thomas Negovan has always been to educate and inspire by creating a bridge of understanding between the late 19th century and the present- especially to unsuspecting yet passionate audiences; one notable example being the exhibition of museum-level Art Nouveau to the over 100,000 art lovers annually attending San Diego Comic Con.
The museum is focused primarily on the presentation of Art Nouveau and Symbolist works from Germany, Austria, France and Italy 1880-1920, including the lithography of historically significant artists such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Alphonse Mucha alongside the finest examples of Art Nouveau objects including Amphora and Massier pottery, and artifacts from the golden eras of Silent Film and Cabaret.
Examples of works previously in the Century Guild collection are on permanent display in The Art Institute of Chicago, The Detroit Institute of Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The museum is located in the heart of the Culver City Arts District and is currently open by appointment only. You can contact the gallery directly at gallery @ centuryguild.net or 1-800-610-CENTURY.
