We invite you to listen to a dedicated playlist created by Nasher Museum Director Trevor Schoonmaker. Each song connects with a specific painting in the exhibition Barkley L. Hendricks: Portraits at the Frick. Trevor, a longtime collaborator and friend of the artist, organized the first career retrospective of Hendricks’s paintings at the Nasher Museum in 2008. The playlist includes a bonus track in honor of Barkley, Trevor says, “and an outro to send everyone off with a smile.” Listen here.
