Arkansas Arts Center Hosts, Mark Rothko in the 1940's: The Decisive Decade

- Kelly Ford, Arkansas Arts Center Director of Development talks about the current Mark Rothko exhibition on display at the Arts Center.

The AAC is collaborating with The Arkansas Repertory Theatre, which is staging the raw and revealing Rothko drama Red, now through November 10.

The collaboration is a unique opportunity to witness both an artist's life and work, all within a five mile radius.

The 1940s was a decade of tremendous change for the world and for Mark Rothko (1903-1970). The most important result was the formation of what became known as The New York School, a collection of artists working in a nexus of
artistic approaches, the best known of which were Gesturalism, or Abstract Expressionism, and Color Field.

Mark Rothko in the 1940s: The Decisive Decade will be the first exhibition to reevaluate this work in the context of Rothko’s thoughts about art from the period. The exhibition will bring to light many works not seen before by scholars or the public and highlight a period of his career that is often overlooked
