Join Hunter curators and Chattanooga writer/performance artist Kayla Mae Anderson as they explore the visual art of abstract expressionist painter, Helen Frankenthaler. After a curator-led discussion of Frankenthaler’s work, Anderson will present a devised performance inspired by Frankenthaler's Around the Clock with Red and the roles of women in American society.
Tonight's performance is open and free to the public. Please note that our special exhibition, "Monet & American Impressionism," will be open this evening, as well, but entry does require a regular admission ticket ($15 adults, $7.50 ages 3-17, FREE to museum members).
