The Nelson A. Rockefeller Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 15, fourth floor

By looking at sculptures by Louise Bourgeois and paintings by Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, explore the boundaries between abstraction and figuration, and the role of Surrealism in American art around 1945. Then, make your own personage creations.

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.
