Thiebaud started teaching at UC Davis in 1960. During that year and the following year, he also created more than 100 paintings; all with exaggerated colors similar to commercial advertising, that depicted everday objects of American life such as: gumball machines, swimsuits, and slices of pie. In 1962, his national reputation began as he traveled to New York City on a grant from UCD, to debut his exhibition at the Allan Stone Gallery. He officially retired from UCD in 1991. Through his lifetime Thiebaud has won many awards, and has been inducted in the California Hall of Fame.
