Pollock-Krasner Foundation awards $25,000 to support research on Lee Krasner

It might seem odd that Ruth Appelhof is currently in Rome, assembling a book proposal on the American artist Lee Krasner. But most everything about the project embraces the improbable and the serendipitous.

Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio Featured in NY Times

Beyond the quaint center of Lenox, Mass., past Gilded Age Berkshire cottages and down a winding, tree-lined path, a bright white stucco and glass building stands out against the pines: the Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio.

HAHS Exhibition Transformed

When the Roger Brown Study Collection in Chicago mounted the HAHS travelling exhibition, it augmented the show with additional works of art, a slide show in the gallery, and an on-line brochure. The Roger Brown Study Collection, established by Brown to preserve his home and studio environment as a teaching tool, is affiliated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). The HAHS exhibition, retitled “Compare and Contrast – 39 American Artists,” explores the roster of HAHS sites through the lens of Roger Brown’s ideas, critiques, and related works, in hopes of inspiring rigorous comparing and contrasting by SAIC’s faculty, students and our guests.
