Terry Haggerty draws on the vocabulary of abstract art to create his illusory paintings and large-scale wall works. The artist’s central motif is created by painting patterned lines that alternate a light and dark color, such as white and blue. When juxtaposed, these colors play off of each other, appearing to advance and recede (as seen in Kinetic Friction, 2009).

Dinner at Café Modern
Third Fridays, 5:30–6 pm
The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
This program will focus on works in the special exhibition México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990, which presents some of the most important artists working in Mexico today and features a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, video, photography, collage, and drawing. For Crossing the Border: A Closer Look, distinguished artists from North Texas visit and discuss work in the exhibition with the class, leading participants in specially designed studio projects using mixed and new media.

Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison, artists and pioneers of the eco-art movement
Newton and Helen Harrison, a collaborative team often referred to simply as “the Harrisons,” are among the leading pioneers of the eco-art movement. They have worked for almost 40 years with biologists, ecologists, architects, urban planners, and other artists to collectively initiate promising dialogue to uncover ideas and solutions which support biodiversity and community development.
