Trip: MFA to see the exhibit: Frank Bowling’s Americas
January 11 @ 10:30 am
The bus departs at 10:30 am for a trip to the MFA to see the exhibit: Frank Bowling’s Americas. The exhibition brings together a range of Bowling’s powerful works in the country of their making—Pop-inflected paintings from the early 1960s; monumental, color-soaked canvases that evoke oceanic expanses; and little-seen examples of the artist’s technically pioneering paintings rooted in abstraction. Providing for the first time a nuanced encounter with this pivotal chapter of Bowling’s career, “Frank Bowling’s Americas” offers an essential contribution to a more cross-cultural and global understanding of modern art. Approximate return: 2:00 pm. Fee: $47 for transportation and admission. Lunch is on your own at the museum.
