Docent Lecture: "Frank Stella: A Retrospective", by Marsha Holm

Frank Stella, Lac Laronge III, 1969
December 3, 2016 -
12:30pm1:30pm

Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at age 23, with his series of black paintings. Over the years his abstract compositions became increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. The de Young is the only West Coast venue for this retrospective covering six decades of Stella’s work, including paintings, wall mounted reliefs, and sculptures.

Danny Lyon, "Joselyn, Colombia", 1975
Koret Auditorium
7:15 pm

An inspiring film with unforgettable imagery, Los Niños Abandonados (1975, 63 min., color, Spanish with English subtitles) was filmed by Danny Lyon in Santa Marta, Colombia. The film shows the daily rhythms of a gang of boys who live on the city’s streets. Their survival skills and errant lifestyles are in evidence as they beg for scraps to eat, wheel and deal with storekeepers and street vendors, and play together.
