Portraits of mummies greet visitors at a new exhibition where art, science and history intersect.
A who’s who of great artists and writers of the 20th century was influenced by one who died in semi-obscurity nearly 200 years ago.
Being labeled "the topless cellist" was a mixed blessing for one American artist of the avant-garde. Charlotte Moorman's occasional nudity in her performances attracted curiosity, but it also may have distracted from the pioneering work she brought to experimental art of the 1960s and ‘70s. A new exhibition looks at the bold life and legacy of this musician, performer and muse.
A show dedicated to the life of the barrier-breaking performance artist opens Saturday at Northwestern’s Block Museum.
We find out what’s happening at the newly reopened Block Museum on the campus of Northwestern University, including a show of photographs by master photographer Edward Steichen and Polaroids by Andy Warhol. Watch a web extra video.
