I am old enough to remember in the early 1960's, Norton Simon, then owner of Hunt's Foods, located in Fullerton, wanted to give back to Fullerton's community by building an art museum, and at personal cost to him, fill up this museum with art by Picasso, Renoir, Brancusi, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, ancient art from India, Africa, Middle East, and the list goes on. The only thing Simon asked the civic leaders of Fullerton to do in exchange for his donation was to maintain security for the collections and maintain the building. Typical Fullerton myopia set in and the city refused to expend any $ towards maintaining these priceless treasures. Fullerton remaining true to its short-sighted nature, now shows off its homegrown artists. Yea, it sorta looks like impressionism or expressionism or abstract. Yea, but Fullerton art walk resembles more no talent slobs successfully passing themselves off as the next Van Gogh by dressing themselves up as "Fullerton Art Walk". Fellini's "Satyricon" better captures the zeitgeist of "Fullerton's Art Walk".
