“The work of Vicci Sperry has been exhibited over eight decades in leading museums, galleries and universities and art institutes.  During the 1960s, she took a step back from exhibiting her painting to concentrate on writing and lecturing, such was the art community’s appetite for her profound insights. This fertile period resulted in the book, “The Art Experience.”   Noted critics and leading scholars used and still use Sperry’s book as source material for advanced writing and art classes.”

The years 1960-69 were devoted to writing and lecturing. The Art Experience has been for many years recommended reading for the docents at Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Robert Kirsch, book critic for the Los Angeles Times gave The Art Experience a glowing review in 1970. The book was used by Mr. Kirsch as source material for his advanced writing class at UCLA.
