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.

The presentations kick off with a talk on Thursday, August 22, at noon, titled "Brain Food: By The Sea, By The Sea, 1950s," by Alicia Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, who will be discussing Frankenthaler's summers in East Hampton and in Provincetown with Motherwell.
