COMING TO THE LEAGUE
May 11 — 12, 2018
To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the League’s building we’re throwing open the doors for a two-day extravaganza of parties and open house events.
At [STartUP] you can tour the League’s studios and travel back in time with Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, and Jackson Pollock; marvel at the talent of Winslow Homer, Peggy Bacon, Will Barnet, and a legion of other artists, their masterpieces hanging from the walls; and spark your imagination by delighting in workshops and demos led by contemporaries of Eva Hesse, James Rosenquist, and Ai Weiwei.
