Eye On Art

The Rye Arts Center kicks off another season of Eye On Art: a series of tours and lectures.

 

Eye On Art is a series of tours and lectures that allows local art-lovers to explore our region’s cultural treasures and learn about topics in the art world from professionals in the field.

 

Some special opportunities offered this season include Lynda Benglis’s bio-morphic sculptures at Storm King Art Center, a rarely viewed, world-class collection of modern paintings stored in an underground bunker at The Philip Johnson Glass House. At Dia:Beacon, participants will watch the play of natural light as it interacts with an assemblage of colored lights and delicate, scrims in an installation by Robert Irwin.

 

Margot Clark-Junkins will present a lecture on Public Art, and Rail Harrison Roman, Ph.D. will reveal the extensive relationship between mathematics and art.
