As you may or may not be aware, this year Lincoln Center Institute is launching a series of Imagination Lesson Plans. These pre-designed units of study are a first offering of this kind from the Institute. Imagination Lesson Plans are designed to be teacher-led and conform to New York State language standards. Whether teachers utilize the suggested lessons exactly as they are or as jumping-off points for lessons created by them, they will benefit from LCI’s imaginative learning methodology, which is woven throughout.
One of the units we’re offering, in partnership with Lincoln Center’s List Print and Poster Program, is “Helen Frankenthaler: Three Posters.” As part of the unit of study, in addition to the suggested lessons, schools receive high-quality posters of Aerie, Mary Mary, and Solar Imp. (The posters are theirs to keep.)
Ms. Frankenthaler’s gallery representative, Knoedler Gallery, is currently exhibiting her work in a curation entitled Frankenthaler: East and Beyond. We are delighted to learn that the original Aerie is included among the paintings and woodcuts in the exhibit. The gallery welcomes visitors and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays. Frankenthaler: East and Beyond is on exhibit through March 11, 2011. Visit the Knoedler Gallery web site for more information.
