The Parrish Art Museum is currently presenting an exhibition that takes an in depth look at the life and work of the American abstract-expressionist artist, Helen Frankenthaler. In "Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown,” not only is her work on display, but in the coming weeks, artists like Clifford Ross will be leading discussions and presentations about the late artist that will explore her work and life.

The topics will cover her time in East Hampton as well as Provincetown, Massachusetts, with her former husband, Robert Motherwell. All programs are open to the public are are free with museum admission.
