Three years ago, Off-Ramp went to the Orange County Museum of Art for their fifth California Biennial: a collection of new and emerging contemporary artists in California. Nobody knew then, but the 2010 California Biennial was to be OCMA's last. 

New curator Dan Cameron expanded, adapted, and revamped the group show into a new idea and introduced California to the first ever California Pacific Triennial: a collection of artists who live and work around the Pacific Ocean.  

We sent Off-Ramp producer Kevin Ferguson to the exhibit's opening party this past Saturday. He interviewed several of the artists featured. But first, he talked with curator Dan Cameron to get a sense of the new show.
