The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis, will for the first time have a fund dedicated to purchasing and acquiring new art. Janet and Clint Reilly, a notable San Francisco couple with deep civic, philanthropic and business ties to the Bay Area, have pledged a $1 million family gift to establish the Janet and Clint Reilly Acquisition Fund at UC Davis.
The gift will support the Manetti Shrem Museum’s Fine Arts Collection, which focuses on the representation of UC Davis’ legacy and aims to become the primary repository of works by the university’s first-generation art faculty such as Wayne Thiebaud and Robert Arneson. The museum plans to strengthen the collection and fill in gaps through strategic acquisitions.
