Curator Talk: Kirsten Marples on “Hyperreal: Gray Foy”

Join Kirsten Marples, Menil Drawing Institute Curatorial Associate, on Sunday, May 21 at 3:00pm, for a close look at Gray Foy’s intricate drawings from the 1940s and 1950s on view in the exhibition Hyperreal: Gray Foy. The exhibit, at our partner institution, the Menil Drawing Institute in Houston, celebrates two recent gifts of nearly 80 drawings and spans the artist’s largely overlooked career, from the 1940s to the 1970s. The program is free with admission. For more information go to
