The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Free, drop-in spotlight tours led by museum staff are offered every Wednesday and Saturday at 1 p.m.
“Manual of Section”
In architectural planning, a section is a drawing of a vertical cut of a structure that shows a view not normally seen by the human eye. What can this perspective also reveal about community relationships? Paul Lewis, Director of Graduate Studies at Princeton University’s School of Architecture, will draw upon his recently published bestselling book, Manual of Section, to explain architectural section drawings and studies. He will present work from his office, Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis Architects, including the winning design for an art center in Telluride, Vassar College, Columbia University, Claremont Colleges, the Contemporary Austin, and the Helen R. Walton Children’s Enrichment Center.
