"Jackson Pollock: A Life of Show and Tell, Give and Take" @ Desert Foothills Library
Of great debate is the value of art made by iconic abstract painter Jackson Pollock. To some, he forged a new movement in American creativity. For others, his splatter style was to high art what Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is to Breaking Bad. If you have yet to make up your mind, get a closer look at Pollock when Perrin McEwen discusses the artist, his works, and his famously volatile temper at Desert Foothills Library, at 4 p.m. on Friday, December 21, as part of the Art Nosh series presented by SMoCA. Wine and cheese will be served. Admission is $10. RSVP by calling the library at 480-488-2286.
