Organized by Assistant Curator Clare Elliott, the exhibition EARTH PAINT PAPER WOOD emphasizes works on paper from the 20th century from the Menil Collection’s permanent collection. With an eye toward the realization of the Menil Drawing Institute and Study Center, which is set to eventually occupy its own building on the museum campus, this exhibition encompasses nearly 60 works that continues to build upon the legacy of its founders, John and Dominique de Menil. Don’t miss works on paper by Claes Oldenburg, works by Willem de Kooning, Frank Stella, Marlene Dumas, Kiki Smith, Robert Gober, plus metal sculptures by Jim Love, and more.
