Throwback Thursday:  This photograph was taken in 1961 at Claes Oldenburg's The Store, which featured brightly painted sculptures and sculptural reliefs shaped to evoke commercial products and comestibles.  This weekend is your last chance to see these works at MoMA’s current exhibit Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store. Don’t miss it!

#Throwback Thursday: By the time this photograph was taken, Robert Irwin had began to leave the studio as a painter in order to expand the role of art from an object into something that could be experienced as perception, shadow and light.  We hope you can visit his current exhibit, Dotting the i’s & Crossing the t’s, before it closes this Saturday.

Reblog of the day: This #ThrowbackThursday pick shows Mark Rothko with one of his commissioned paintings for the Menil Chapel in Houston, TX.  These late works, much like works currently on view in our exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, relate less to any personal tragedy in Rothko’s life, and more to eternal and depersonalized metaphysical questions.
