The Crocker Art Museum is framing its reopening around a new exhibit showcasing a more diverse group of artists.

On Thursday, the museum reopened to the general public for the first time in more than a year.

“I’ve moved into the neighborhood now and I’m excited I can walk here,” said 90-year-old Gloria Powell.
