The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art and The Wine History Project of SLO County presents Wine Becomes Art, an exhibition featuring original works and art etchings on wine bottles. The exhibition includes original artworks by Michael Masicampo, Candice Norcross, James-Paul Brown, Carissa Chappellet, Gary Conway, Tim Lloyd, Colleen Gnos, Yuroz, and artists of the Mano Tinta Project.
Wine Becomes Art is the culmination of artists and winemakers tying their artistic craftsmanship together to create works of art while helping to promote the Central Coast wine industry. Through the lens of three community-wide organizations, the Central Coast Wine Classic, the Edna Valley Arroyo Grande Valley Vintners, and Growers Association (now SLO Wine Country) and the Mano Tinta Project, Wine Becomes Art showcases the synergy of the creative process of winemaking and the visual arts.
