After years of planning and effort, NUMU is finally opening in Los Gatos with a mission to celebrate art, innovation, and history and how they intersect.
NUMU—a.k.a. the New Museum Los Gatos— is huge, with over 6,000 square feet of space including eight galleries hosting 18 rotating exhibitions annually.
Among the first exhibits to be slated is: Hear Art See Music, a collaboration with the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles containing works from such notable rockers as Serj Tankian of System of a Down, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, and “Fantastic Realism” painter Leonardo Cuervo. Also on the docket is Giants in the Sky –The Rise and Fall of Airships a collaboration with NASA which poses the idea that the same Valley that is responsible for our fascination with tiny devices, was, once upon a time, a key player in Airship technology.
“The idea here,” says Executive Director Lisa Coscino, “was to not only hit the refresh button, but reboot the whole museum concept."
NUMU Grand Opening Celebration is Saturday, June 6 from 12 - 4 p.m. Admission is FREE. Exhibitions will be free to members and those under 18; general admission is $5.00
