A press release issued yesterday on January 29, 2007 stated that Boston College is preparing for a new exhibit called "Pollock Matters". The exhibition will premier at the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College. The exhibit revolves around the personal and artistic relationships between Jackson Pollock, an American painter, and Herbert Matter, a photographer and graphic designer.
The museum will also display over two dozen newly discovered pieces presumably by Pollock. These experimental pieces were found by Matter's son in a storage facility. After scrutiny and examination, the pieces were found to be authentic. This exhibit will debut the works for the first time to the public.
Not only is the exhibit significant to Boston, but it is significant on a national and international level as well. The exhibit at Boston College will open on September 1, 2007 until December 9, 2007. The admission and parking to the McMullen Museum is free and open to the public. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
