About Kelly &…
Launched in conjunction with the opening of Ellsworth Kelly’s ’Austin’ in 2018, this informal series explores interesting facets of Kelly’s practice, from his service in the Ghost Army during World War II to his postcard collages, a little-known, fascinating body of work. All talks are held on Fridays at 12 noon in the Smith Building Capitol Room and are free with museum admission. You are welcome to bring your lunch.
