Have you ever wondered what a work of art is trying to say?

In this new take on member experiences, you will be guided in artful conversation by expert docents to uncover what lies beneath the surface of some of The Newark Museum of Art’s most beloved artworks.

Abstract art does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality, but instead uses shapes, colors, forms, and gestural marks to achieve its effect. The Newark Museum of Art, early to the game, supported the work of abstract artists even when others were saying, “What’s that?”

At this unique Member Experience, docents Ellen Lambert, Judi Robinson, and Betsy Thomas will lead a discussion about the inspiration and legacy of American abstract art, highlighting choice examples that span the collection.

Location: 2nd Floor, North Wing

Registration is required.

This event is exclusively for members.
