The Palm Springs Art Museum presents Leon Polk Smith: 1945 - 1962

This exhibition presents the work of the innovative painter, Leon Polk Smith (1906-1996), whose significant contributions to twentieth-century art are becoming increasingly recognized. Using a vocabulary of brilliant colors and simple, minimal forms, Smith challenged some of the most fundamental conventions of painting by dissolving the distinction between foreground and background and freeing his paintings from the boundaries of a rectangular format.

The Museum is open Thursday - Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm / The Museum is open to 7:00 PM on Thursdays.

Free admission on Thursdays from 5:00-7:00 pm (funded by the City of Palm Springs).
