Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2)

Among the most iconic works in the history of modern art, Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2) challenged both European and American artists in ways they had never experienced before. A generous loan from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this masterwork is on view through July 7, 2016. Also on view, Tibet's White Tara is an enlightened being of Tibetan Buddhism embodied in the form of a radiant goddess. A generous loan from the Asia Society, New York, this piece is on view through November 6, 2016.
This Wednesday, grab a drink at the bar and join others to learn the tricks to making pop-up cards. Perfect for that special person celebrating Mother’s Day in May.
