CANCELLED: Five Tables of Earth, Rock, Sand, and Dirt

Regretfully, Five Tables of Earth, Rock, Sand, and Dirt has been cancelled.

Drop by our art study centers on Free First Thursday for an up-close look at treasures from the BAMPFA collections. On view this session: the poster for Walter De Maria’s iconic installation The New York Earth Room; a stunning photograph of sand dunes by Ansel Adams; Robert Watts’s Fluxus kit Rocks Marked by Weight; James Ensor’s scabrous etching Peste dessous, peste dessus, peste partout (Pollution Under, Pollution Over, Pollution All Around); Barbara Bloom’s conceptual puzzle THOUGHTS ABOUT: the difficulty in extracting iron from Dutch sand and other things for Alice Hutchins, and more!
