How did artists in the 1960s innovate with new processes and nontraditional materials? Join us to discuss how works from Andy Warhol's silkscreened Gold Marilyn to Dan Flavin's sculptures crafted from fluorescent lights challenge or expand our notion of how an artwork can be constructed.
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.
