Afterwards we will head for drinks and dinner nearby at Larkin Connors. : )
Jamie Wyeth and Jasper Johns
The first comprehensive retrospective of artist Jamie Wyeth (born 1946) examines his imaginative approach to realism over the course of six decades, from his earliest childhood drawings through various recurring themes inspired by the people, places, and objects that populate his world.
One of the greatest American draftsmen and creative printmakers from the 1960s to the present, Jasper Johns introduced new conceptual ideas about representation by focusing on signs and symbols that were inherently flat, such as numbers, flags, and targets. His works often involve a playful dialogue between art and illusion, between three-dimensionality and flatness, and between images and words. The artist’s prints are sophisticated variations on his paintings, and the idea of serial repetition with variation also plays a prominent role in his work. “Jasper Johns: Picture Puzzles” consists of 22 works by Johns, including prints, drawings, and relief sculpture.
Via The T: Take the Green Line E train to the Museum of Fine Arts stop, or the Orange Line train to the Ruggles stop.
Driving: Use this Google Map, click on directions, then add the address you’re coming from. There is a garage/parking lot which is $17 for the evening after 5:30, or you have a slim chance at finding street parking.
If you’re just going to Connor Larkins, you can get off of the Green Line E train to the Northeastern University stop. You can use the lot at the MFA or you can try your luck at parking on the street.
See you there!
