Figure to Field: Mark Rothko in the 1940s

Submitted by Jerilyn Forsythe on Thu, 04/18/2013 - 10:27am

Esteemed artist Mark Rothko's mantra—color, form, and field—is constantly repeated when describing the abstract paintings, drawings, and watercolors of artist Mark Rothko. Focusing on works Rothko produced in the ’40s as a member of the New York School, this exhibit explores the artist’s evolution from using blurred figures to creating flat forms. Highlights include the iconic No. 8, a prime example of his color-blocking skills with its simple yet textured peach and mauve squares. Tue-Thu 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fri 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat-Sun 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

 

 

Fall Out Boy

When Fall Out Boy announced an indefinite hiatus in 2009, its steady stream of platinum hits came to an abrupt halt. After a variety of solo and side endeavors, the pop-punk quartet reunited this year for a new album, Save Rock and Roll. This is your chance to catch them in more intimate digs before they hit arenas nationwide later this year. Sun 7:30 p.m.
