Piet Mondrian’s masterworks are the result of minutely calibrated changes, resulting in an uncanny sense of balance that seems both solid and precarious. How did he do it? Using the same elements that Mondrian used to make his painting, try your hand at organizing them in your own compositions.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
