Sikh Art in America: The Kapany Collection

January 8 – March 5

This unique exhibit introduces Sikh art alongside a historical look at the Sikh migration and history from Punjab to America, more specifically California. Through the Kapany Collection we introduce the Sikh culture, history and ethos. Our timeline highlights the Sikh journey, calling attention to their important contributions to agriculture, science and community.  

This collection from Narinder S. and Satinder K. Kapany, an unparalleled assemblage of both antique and contemporary art, does well to establish the history of the Sikh people, not just their religion but rather art that is by and about Sikhs. Through these works we hope to illuminate opportunities to build unity, connectivity, and a richer shared understanding of each other and of our Golden State.
