February 11, 2016 - There is a lot happening at Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum as it heads into the second half of 2016 - exhibitions include glass (from ancient Roman to contemporary American), photography, colonial art, sculpture and European drawings.

Talks, walks and the like are great ways to learn a little more about the art on display.

And Gallery Bites -- also monthly at noon -- takes a half-hour look at a different gallery each time.
