History Pub: Portland and the Art of Mark Rothko
Admission: Free to the public
One of the most celebrated artists associated with Abstract Expressionism in the United States, Mark Rothko (born Marcus Rothkowitz) spent his childhood in Portland and graduated in 1921 from Lincoln High School. He had his first major museum show at the Portland Art Museum in 1933.
In a special program by the Portland Art Museum and Portland Center Stage, Portland-based artist Arcy Douglas and LA-based actor Daniel Benzali, (who will be portraying Mark Rothko in the PCS production of Red), will be sharing their research on this local artist.
History Pub will also be accepting canned food for the Oregon Food Bank.
