Panel Discussion: Helen Frankenthaler

April 20, 2018
Fullerton Hall
Free with museum admission, registration required

Persistently experimental and courageous over some sixty years, Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) produced an impressive oeuvre comprising unique paintings on canvas and paper, as well as ceramics, sculpture, tapestry, and especially printmaking. Her dedication to printmaking will be the focus of a conversation between Douglas Dreishpoon, Director of Helen Frankenthaler Catalogue Raisonné, Mark Pascale, Janet and Craig Duchossois Curator of Prints and Drawings at the The Art Institute of Chicago, and Ruth E. Fine, who, as the Curator of Modern Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art, organized a retrospective of Frankenthaler’s prints in 1993-94.
