A Conversation and Book Signing with Christopher Rothko NoonA Conversation and Book Signing with Christopher Rothko
The Columbia Museum of Art welcomes artist Mark Rothko's son, Christopher, to the Museum for a book signing and an engaging conversation with exhibition catalogue editor Dr. Brad Collins.

"Having Christopher share heartfelt insight on his father's work gives our visitors a unique and very personal connection to the artist's family," CMA Executive Director, Karen Brosius, said. "CMA visitors are responding to Christopher's involvement in the TAP multimedia tour and his introductory essay in the catalogue in a powerful way. His visit will add more depth to their CMA experience."

Christopher has lectured extensively on his father's work at museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Getty Museum, Los Angeles; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and The Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. He writes and edits numerous pieces on his father's artwork, prepares many of the Rothko exhibitions and was closely involved with the planning of the Rothko Centennial celebrations in Latvia and Russia in 2003. He is the editor of the book of his father's philosophical writings on art, The Artist's Reality.

"What the 1940s means above all for (Mark) Rothko is change. It is change on every level – artistic, technical, philosophical, professional, personal, attitudinal, aspirational – change so palpable it nearly bursts the seams of every canvas," Christopher said. "Rothko enters the decade a figurative painter and leaves it one of the most strikingly abstract. This is an exciting journey, for the viewer, as it was for the painter. Rothko is looking for something, looking intently, and we can search with him."

The book, The Artist's Reality, and the exhibition catalogue (in hard cover and soft cover) are available in the Museum Shop.

CMA Jazz on Main: An Evening with Nelson RangellDoors open at 7:00 p.m.
Concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
CMA Jazz on Main: An Evening with Nelson Rangell
"Jazziz" magazine writes that Nelson Rangell is "an artist of depth, a master of song, and an improviser non pareil." The Times of London notes "his extraordinary facility on a range of instruments and his undoubted virtuosity," adding that Nelson is "one of fusion's most accomplished exponents."

Such praise is a confirmation of what contemporary jazz fans have known since the Denver based saxophonist emerged in the late 80s: that Rangell is one of the most exciting and diverse performers in the genre, equally adept at soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone, as well as being a genuine virtuoso on flute and piccolo.

Nelson Rangell will join the Noel Freidline Trio for an amazing evening of contemporary and straight ahead jazz.
