The Color of Our World

The Florene Schoenborn Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 6, fifth floor
According to Henri Matisse, “Modern Art is joy spread through Color.” Color, and its radical use, was fundamental to the artist’s practice. Come experience and understand Matisse’s employment of color, and look at works like Red Studio (1911) and Dance I (1909) in a whole new way.
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.
