Mother's Day outings around Long Island
(Page 3 of 3)
California-born Johanson was part of a community of artists in San Francisco’s Mission District. He gained attention in the 2001 Whitney Biennial and has since been widely exhibited in the U.S. and abroad. Johanson employs an exuberant color palette for simple and imperfect geometric shapes, and is acclaimed for tapping into the late New Age northern California style.
Bring the family for a Mother’s Day visit on Family Sunday, Sunday, May 9. The museum offers a 1 p.m. docent-led family walk-through of the exhibition and, beginning at 1:30 p.m., supervised art activities for the whole family.
Also, spend some time in NCMA’s sculpture park, which features over 50 works, many of them monumental in size. For more outdoor fun, stroll along the many nature trails through the woods on the museum’s 145 acres, ideal for family hikes.
Nassau County Museum of Art is at One Museum Dr., off Northern Blvd., in Roslyn Harbor. For information, contact (516) 484-9337 or www.nassaumuseum.com.
