Addison Gallery Partners with Merrimack Repertory Theatre

This season, the Addison Gallery is proud to partner with the Merrimack Repertory Theatre in Lowell in recognition of Red, the Tony Award-winning play about painter Mark Rothko by John Logan. In this fiery and fiercely funny drama, a lucrative commission challenges Rothko’s aesthetic, and he and his young assistant must work feverishly to blend art and commerce.

In honor of Red, the Addison’s Eye on the Collection and Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking exhibitions this season include works of art by the artists referenced in the play, including Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell, Frank Stella, and others.

Red runs at the MRT February 14 through March 10.
