Learn All About Jackson Pollock

A portion of the Jackson Pollock painting Autumn Rhythm #30 is featured in Olivia. Upon seeing it at the museum, Olivia is quite sure that she could "do that in about five minutes." This provides the perfect opportunity to explore one of the great American artists with the following videos, links, and info!

 

The following video comes directly from the MoMA site. Have some fun learning about how Jackson Pollock created his paintings. It’s really fun!
