The Dorothy & George Saxe Collection of Contemporary Craft

Over the last two decades, George and Dorothy Saxe of Menlo Park and San Francisco have formed one of the premier collections of contemporary craft in the United States. The Saxe Collection, containing works in glass, ceramic, wood, fiber, and metal, is distinguished by both its high quality and its depth, with many major artists represented by works from different periods in their careers. Prominent Bay Area and West Coast artists represented include Robert Arneson, Dale Chihuly, Viola Frey, Sam Maloof, Manuel Neri, Peter Voulkos, and Beatrice Wood. Also included in the collection are works by artists better known for their work in other media, including Larry Bell, Linda Benglis, Nicolas Africano, Kiki Smith, and Christopher Wilmarth.
