Can an artist’s words enrich our understanding of their work? Or does it sometimes get in the way? Quoting from artists such as Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol, we will look closely at an artist’s work and their words.

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.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
