February 26, 2021

Join Frauke V. Josenhans, Associate Curator at the Moody Center for the Arts, for a tour of Artists and the Rothko Chapel: 50 Years of Inspiration. The exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Rothko Chapel by highlighting the extraordinary impact the Chapel has had on both artists and the public since opening in 1971. Organized in two sections, the first part restages the 1975 exhibition Marden, Novros, Rothko: Painting in the Age of Actuality. The second section looks to the future, highlighting works by Sam Gilliam, Sheila Hicks, Shirazeh Houshiary, and Byron Kim. T
