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.
