Event: Basquiat

Thursday February 23, 2017

Basquiat
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Layered with symbols, text, graffiti-like expressions, and references to other creative minds, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s paintings broke auction records for work by an African-American artist and remain highly collectible today. Basquiat, written and directed by painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, tells the story of the artist’s short, tragic life and his meteoric success.

Curator Jennifer Jankauskas will introduce the historic context and the film with a brief discussion following. Beverages will be available for purchase. Popcorn will be served.
