Event Description

Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning are two of the most well-known and groundbreaking American abstract painters. Friends and competitors, they jockeyed for position to be the most important American artist of the century. Find out how Pollock and De Kooning pushed twentieth-century American painting (and each other) in daring new directions. Kimberly Datchuk, curator of learning & engagement leads the discussion.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to you in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme – game day, frenemies, cats – that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the SMA in advance at 319-335-1727.
