Discover more about the works on view in these special tours with artists as they discuss their perspectives on the work of their peers. A major figure of the post-1960s era and one of DC's more important artists, Gilliam achieved widespread acclaim with his groundbreaking draped paintings, which blur distinctions between painting, sculpture, and architecture. A retrospective of Sam Gilliam's work including the Hirshhorn's painting by the artist, organized and exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, is on tour until 2007. Meet at the Information Desk.
