In 1957, Jack Kerouac's On The Road celebrated the Beat Generation's quest for the ecstatic and authentic. At the same time many American painters were engaged in a similar search for what a painting could be. Five major works in the museum's collection, created between 1957 and 1961 represent important turning points for the artists who created them: Richard Diebenkorn, Stephen Greene, David Park, Franz Kline and Richard Pousette-Dart. In addition to learning about the lives of the artists, a demonstration of their different painting techniques will be included.
