This evening the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is showing The Silence of Mark Rothko. This installation in their Modernism and Film Series has us intrigued, not only as fans of Rothko’s work, but also because this is a rare departure for the series. Most of the films shown are about architecture or design in the modern era or style, but this one focuses on the intent of the painter.
Prior to the film at 6pm, there will be opening remarks by UNC Charlotte Associate Professor of Art History, Jae Emerling, as well as light bites and a cash bar. Tickets are $10 for the public, $8 for museum members, and $5 for students.
