Even though artist Charles Arnoldi was born in Dayton, Ohio, his art career was nurtured in Southern California. He attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles in the late 1960’s and by the 1970’s was having exhibitions at prestigious galleries across the United States. He was also collecting awards: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Young Talent Award, two NEA Artist Fellowships in 1974 and 1982, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Maestro Grant from the California Arts Council. His work is in the collections of many major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California.
