A new exhibit at downtown San Diego's Central Library provides a glimpse into the art collection of San Diegan Walter Pomeroy.
Pomeroy amassed the collection of mid-century paintings and sculptures over six decades with little money.
"I never thought I was collecting art," Pomeroy told KPBS reporter Angela Carone. "I bought a painting and then I bought another painting and then I bought another one. And before long my walls were covered."
The exhibit "Portrait of Pomeroy" is on display in the gallery space at the San Diego Central Library through May 15.
