Files about artists who showed their work at UC Davis's Richard L.
Nelson Gallery as well as correspondence and historical records related to the gallery.
The Richard L. Nelson Gallery was dedicated in 1976 in memory of the first Chair of the Department of Art at the
University of California, Davis. Established as an exhibition venue and teaching resource for the Art Department, the gallery
program also served the campus population, art communities, and general public of Northern California and the Central Valley.
The gallery closed in 2016 with the opening of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, which continues the
Nelson Gallery's exhibits and programs.
