The Portland Art Museum
is open free of charge today and yes you can take advantage of it even if your
day job keeps you occupied during office hours, the Museum is open till 8:00 PM
on Thursdays and Fridays.
Besides the Hilda
Painters in Bresca
shows there are some things to really take note of at
the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art.
First of all be certain to check out the Richard
Rezac show that PORT reported on earlier
But the most exciting works are some of the pieces on loan. The show stopper
is Mark Rothko's "Homage to Matisse" (lent by an anonymous donor)
it's an essential work that needs to be included in any serious Rothko retrospective
and the single most important artwork residing in the Pacific Northwest right
now, yes it set an auction record for Rothko late last year.
Other highlights are an early Untitled Donald Judd lent by the Miller Meigs
collection. It's absolutely extra nice with its vermilion red color and placement
near an Agnes Martin.
Then there is the wonderful Hans Hofmann that really adds something to the
Abstract Expressionist room.
