Deconstructing the Beatles’ Rubber Soul

Fri, 6/30
Children and their favorite grown-up are introduced to art, the museum, and verbal and visual literacy in this program that combines art making, storytelling, movement, and play.

 

Alfredo Jaar
Through Sun, 8/6
Chilean-born artist Alfredo Jaar’s digital animation A Logo for America was commissioned by The Public Art Fund and shown for the first time as a Spectacolor sign in Times Square in New York in 1987.  The video shown here documents the original presentation as well as three subsequent public installations in New York (2014), Mexico City (2015) and London (2016).

 

Open Now: Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s
Through Sun, 8/6
Discover Alex Katz’s innovative paintings of the 1950s in the first major museum exhibition of these works. Combining abstraction with recognizable imagery, Katz’s boldly simplified portraits and landscapes foreshadowed the development of Pop Art. 

Through Sun, 7/30
Come check out powerful photographs taken by Louis Draper and Leonard Freed. This exhibition presents two views of African American daily life during the civil rights era through the photographs of Louis Draper, a black fine art photographer, and Leonard Freed, a white photojournalist.
