On September 21, the Anderson Collection building opened at the Palo Alto campus of Stanford University—our frequent partner-in-crime when it comes to celebrating the West.

Designed by the same team that created Stanford’s stellar Bing Concert Hall, the structure houses 121 works of modern and contemporary American art, all donated by Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson. Of course, we’re most excited about the pieces that have a Western flavor: three lovely Diebenkorns, a Thiebaud “Candy Counter,” and a particularly San Francisco–appropriate Paul Wonner. No prize for guessing where you’ll find us on our lunch breaks come late September…

Admission is free, but by timed reservation on weekends; closed Tues.; anderson.stanford.edu

    The “Palo Alto campus”??? The campus is designated as Stanford, with its own post office as well as police and fire departments.
