During industrialization and immigration in the 1920s and 1930s, urban and rural California landscapes began changing. A group of both young and established artists such as Emil Kosa, Jr., Milford Zornes, Rex Brandt, Roger Kuntz, Marshall Hibbard, Charles F. Keck and Charles Kilgore created an indelible legacy, documenting the gritty, mundane, everyday scenes of their time and region.

The works of California regionalists are featured in a new Laguna College of Art and Design exhibition, which opened this past week.
