It’s Back! Painting, 1970s–1990s

5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series

Saturday, January 29, 2011, 11:15 am

FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
Auditorium

With Curator of Education Mariann Smith

The news of the death of painting had been greatly exaggerated by the Minimalists! Good thing the painters weren’t listening! Stories, imagination, expression, and meaning were all resurrected by artists such as Neil Jenney, Anselm Kiefer, Susan Rothenberg, and Julian Schnabel.

The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery’s Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.

Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
