Whitney Signs:
Lyonel Feininger: At the Edge of the World

SAT, Sep 10, 2011
3 pm

Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of Lyonel Feininger: At the Edge of the World at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 pm.

Long acknowledged as a major figure of the Bauhaus, Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) is renowned for his romantic, crystalline paintings of architecture and seascapes. Less well known are the whimsical aspects of his work: his pioneering Chicago Sunday Tribune comic strips; his figurative, Expressionist compositions; his photographs; and his miniature hand-carved wooden figures and buildings, known as City at the Edge of the World. This retrospective is the first in Feininger’s native country in more than forty-five years, and the first ever to include the full breadth of his art.

Please note: we regret that complimentary tickets will no longer be available for ASL students. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
