Members Noontime Talk: Cy Twombly

Friday, Feb. 14, 2020 – Friday, Feb. 14, 2020

12:00 PM – 01:00 PM


Industrial paint, oil paint, crayon, and graphite are among the materials that Cy Twombly incorporated into his paintings. How does the museum identify the various elements he used? Join Molly Everett, Curatorial Assistant, Modern and Contemporary Art, and Desi Dijkema, Assistant Paintings Conservator, at the Cy Twombly Gallery to hear about their research on Twombly’s artwork.

Held every Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
