“I’m really interested in materials and how paintings come together and how they’re structured. Not everyone understands how these things come together—you just see the finished object.” — Mario Moore

Join us in the galleries as Senior Curator Lauren Haynes talks with painter Mario Moore about works of art in the collection. Moore is the artist-in-residence at the Rubenstein Arts Center for Spring 2022. Haynes joined the museum in 2021 and organized the upcoming exhibition Beyond the Surface: Collage, Mixed Media and Textile Works from the Collection.

We are going to be looking closely at some artworks in the collection, with the hope that we can share some information and ideas that visitors might not know. We’ll be able to see parts of the collection through an artist’s eye.
