Gallery Talk: Helen Frankenthaler: The Romance of a New Medium

June 15, 2018
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

When Helen Frankenthaler was invited to the Universal Limited Art Editions print workshop, she was unsure if her large-scale expressive technique would translate to lithography. Yet the experiments proved to be a creative boon for the artist, who called lithography “learning from and projecting onto the stone.” Join Woman’s Board Fellow Alice Boone for a study of the nearly complete collection of more than 50 prints from the U.L.A.E workshop.
