Artful Insight – Helen Frankenthaler

August 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

- $10


Join us for a special conversation on Helen Frankenthaler’s Phoenix, 1976, and the advent of Abstract Expressionism in the West. Frankenthaler pioneered her trademark staining technique, where paintings like the one at the American Museum of Western Art were created by pouring thin layers of paint onto unprimed canvas. With her unique style, Frankenthaler interpreted the experience of the West through color and emotion instead of realism and detail.

Guests may arrive early to reserve their seats. The talk will begin at 3:00pm and last approximately 1 hour. Artful Insights are limited to a small number of visitors and advance reservations are highly recommended, as programs often sell out. Tickets are not refundable for sold out events.


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
