Explore postwar artists' varied approaches to using text in their paintings. We discuss key works by Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, John Baldessari, and Lawrence Weiner.

Sign language–interpreted Gallery Conversations are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks. Gallery Conversations are free with Museum admission. No registration is required; however, we suggest arriving 10 minutes prior to the start of a talk, as groups are limited to 25.
