This tour is free with museum admission.

Short on time but full of curiosity? Join us for Spotlight Tours, 20-minute conversations in the galleries led by one of our Museum Guides.

Our second-floor galleries are full of artists whose ideas and techniques changed the course of art history in the twentieth century. In this tour, a Museum Guide will dive into the life, times, and work of one master artist, such as Sargent Johnson, Mark Rothko, Frida Kahlo, or Jackson Pollock.
