The Central Coast of California has long attracted a pantheon of photographers – artists whose works are appreciated the world over. Wynn Bullock and his wife Edna, who became a fine art photographer after he died, are among this special group.
For many years, UC Santa Cruz has been collecting the transformative work of the Bullocks, along with that of other leading California photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Pirkle Jones and Ruth Marion Baruch.
Funding is needed for UCSC to acquire the archive so that this cultural treasure may be preserved and shared. Thanks to the generosity of over 90 donors, this fundraising effort has already enabled the University to acquire the entire groundbreaking Wynn Bullock Color Light Abstraction Traveling Exhibition, plus a key print of Wynn’s vintage black-and-white work.
Additional funding will enable further acquisitions of Wynn’s and Edna’s iconic black-and-white work, allowing more of this cultural treasure to be preserved and shared. Please donate today to ensure that the Bullock family legacies can continue to inspire generations to come!
All donations are fully tax-deductible minus the value of any thank-you gifts requested. Every donation will be acknowledged by a note of appreciation from Barbara Bullock-Wilson on a frameable card of one of her parent’s photographs, including an interesting backstory of the image.
