Members' Event—Red: An Evening with Mark Rothko

Thursday, March 6, 2014, 6:30–9 pm

Red: An Evening with Mark Rothko

Enjoy a scene from the Broadway play Red directed by Randall Kramer, starring Paul Todaro and Patrick Tighe. Learn about the art of Mark Rothko through a painting in the Collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and a talk by Chief Curator Douglas Dreishpoon.

More about Red: Winner of six Tony Awards, this sizzling 90-minute play by John Logan is one of the most riveting shows to recently hit Broadway. Famed abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko asks his young assistant Ken the loaded question, 'What do you see?' What is art? And who gets to decide anyway? At times both hilarious and thought-provoking, RED asks important questions with sharp wit and razor-like precision.

'Intense and exciting...RED captures the dynamic relationship between an artist and his creations.' - The New York Times

Doors open at 6:30 pm. The event begins at 7 pm and concludes by 8 pm, followed by a cash bar until 8:30 pm. For reservations, please call 716.270.8247.
