John Cage stands as a uniquely productive and influential figure in relation to American art in the second half of the Twentieth Century. Known primarily a composer, his idiosyncratic diversity and daring as an artist led him into theater, writing, and visual art. John Cage's STEPS: A Composition for a Painting, Selected Watercolors, and Ephemera, includes five enormous watercolor works resulting from Cage's STEPS project and a room showing the progression of graphically inventive musical scores--from original manuscripts through publication including never-before-exhibited items from the archives of Cage's publisher, C.F. Peters Corporation, New York. This exhibition is presented as part of the citywide celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth.
Exhibition runs September 1 through October 21, Tuesdays through Sundays.
