Visit Catalina Museum To See Ann Weber’s Sculpture Exhibit

Catalina Museum for Art & History launched the exhibition Ann Weber: 26 Miles, now on view March 23 through August 4, 2024. This remarkable collection brings to life the voyage of Ann Weber’s totemic sculptures as they journey across the San Pedro Channel, weaving together an intricate narrative that echoes the historic ballad by the Four Preps.

Renowned for her avant-garde approach, Ann Weber repurposes cardboard to craft monumental sculptures. These sculptures, serving as metaphors for larger psychological and emotional inquiries, breathe a second life into reclaimed packaging. While Weber’s use of discarded materials serves as a poignant commentary on contemporary consumerist culture, her works also act as explorations into the delicate interplay between memory and nostalgia, the vulnerability and resilience of Nature, and, ultimately, the multifaceted aspects of the human spirit—encompassing joy, isolation, wonder and inherent potential.

Ann Weber holds a BA in Art History from Purdue University and an MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts, where she studied under the guidance of distinguished artist Viola Frey. Weber is currently residing and creating in San Pedro, adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles.
