Jackson Pollock’s 20-foot-wide Mural changed the destiny of modern art. Not only did it catapult Pollock into the spotlight, but it also brought audacious new scale and experimentation to Abstract Expressionism. Through advanced technical imaging, conservators studied and treated the painting, learning how it was created. In this free public lecture, Curator Catherine Walworth, Ph.D., explores the importance of Jackson Pollock’s Mural and some of the scientific research done on the piece in recent years. Free.
