A collection of 33 works by California artists worth about $1.5 million has been promised to the San Diego Museum of Art by Frederick R. Weisman, a prominent Los Angeles collector. Final agreements are expected to be signed in the next few days, according to Henry Hopkins, director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. "While the agreement is not signed yet, it certainly looks very favorable. It appears as though it will happen," Hopkins said, adding that no money is attached to the gift.

Frederick R. Weisman, a millionaire Los Angeles art collector and bicoastal businessman, has taken up arms against Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., the Torrance-based subsidiary of Japan's largest auto maker, as it attempts to take over Weisman's billion-dollar auto distribution business. The battle was joined last month, when Toyota repeated its intention to buy Weisman's Mid-Atlantic Toyota Distributors Inc.

Los Angeles art collector Frederick R. Weisman has pledged $3 million to the University of Minnesota in the hopes that his alma mater's art museum will finally get a home of its own to be designed by Santa Monica-based architect Frank Gehry. "I went to the University of Minnesota and I was born in Minneapolis, so there's a lot of strong ties there," Weisman said. "Minnesota means a great deal to me, and the city of Minneapolis is important to me."

Two new exhibitions at UCLA's Wight Art Gallery are about energy in contemporary art. A show of oversize prints by Frank Stella focuses with laser-like intensity. A swath of some 60 works from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation scatters libido like shotgun pellets. The Weisman name is probably the most familiar among Los Angeles collectors of present art.
