This week at CMA: MIX at CMA: Terrific, "Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s" On View Now
Check out these five must-attend events this week at the CMA!
|MIX at CMA: Terrific
Explore the innovative portraits, still lifes, and landscapes of artist Alex Katz in the exhibition Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s. Enjoy art activities inspired by the artist’s work, catch the Americana band the Gage Brothers in the atrium, and check out the outdoor Great Lakes beer garden for a drink and fresh air.
Directed by Frederick Wiseman. Wiseman’s second documentary is a frank, often funny, fly-on-the-wall look at the daily activities within Philadelphia’s Northeast High School during spring 1968. Selected for the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry in 1991.
