Magnificent Magnets and Pollack-Krasner House
One of The Magnificent Magnet’s newest museum customers is Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. This is the former home and studio of Jackson Pollock and his wife, Lee Krasner. As an art major, I remember studying the Abstract Expressionist movement in college when pursuing my degree in art, and Jackson Pollack was an artist that always fascinated me.
Here is the magnet design the museum selected, which is a photo they provided us of the inside of the studio. Our magnets will be featured for sale at the museum beginning this month!
Their opening exhibit is The Persistence of Pollock, May 3–July 28, 2012. Co-organized by the museum’s director, Helen A. Harrison, and art historian Bobbi Coller, the exhibition will feature works that reflect Pollock’s powerful impact and attest to his continued presence as a reference for contemporary artists. The featured artists are Janine Antoni, Robert Arneson, Lynda Benglis, Mike Bidlo, Arnold Chang, François Fiedler, Joe Fig, Red Grooms, Ray Johnson, Vik Muniz, Alfonso Ossorio, Norman Rockwell and Lee Ufan.
I love this image by Norman Rockwell that features Pollock’s work.
The Pollock-Krasner House looks like a great place for a day trip or as a destination if you are vacationing in Long Island. I am planning to visit this summer when I spend the weekend at my friend’s beach house on the North Shore.
