Museum Monday: The St. Louis Art Museum will host a small exhibition of works by Mark Rothko, including canvases on loan from Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland. Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Museum, has mentioned how color is key to Rothko’s work but not everything: “[the artist] also saw his art as a carrier to transcend meaning. He talked about wanting viewers to have the same religious experience standing before his paintings that he did when he painted them.” Read more from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch here. 

The Rothko exhibition at the St. Louis Art Museum in Missouri will be on view from May 24 through September 14, 2014. Mark Rothko: The Watercolors 1941 - 1947 will be on display at Pace Gallery, 32 East 57th Street, New York, from May 2 through June 20, 2014. Celebrate the opening this Thursday, May 1, from 6 to 8 p.m.
