Curator's Perspective

The Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan Collection

August 14, 2015, Noon

Associate Curator for Research Susan Behrends Frank considers the importance of drawing as a separate creative medium for modern and contemporary American sculptors, such as Robert Arneson, Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, David Smith, and Fred Wilson. Works by these artists are among the 18 sculptors’ drawings promised to the Phillips by Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan, a dedicated champion of the arts in the nation’s capital and around the country.
