Happy Birthday, Jackson Pollock!     

If Jackson Pollock were alive, he would have turned 104 today.

As a belated birthday tribute, 
CBS Sunday Morning will air a special segment on the current exhibition,  "Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots," on view through March 20 at the Dallas Museum of Art. Check the program's website for details. Portions of the segment, featuring correspondent Rita Braver, were filmed at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. The Study Center aided the exhibition's curator, Gavin Delahunty, during his research, and provided photographs for the exhibition and catalog.

The Museum of Modern Art's current exhibition, "Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934-1954," features more than 50 works from the museum's comprehensive holdings. Among them is Number 1A, 1948, which was painted in the Pollock-Krasner House, not in the barn studio. To learn the history of this fascinating painting, enlivened by the artist's hand prints, visit Hamptons Art Hub.

Pollock Birthday Party in Phoenix

The Children's Museum of Phoenix, housed in the former Monroe School, which Jackson attended in 1923-24, will hold its annual Pollock birthday celebration today. The staff will decorate a large sheet cake with--you guessed it--multicolored icing squeezed directly from tubes. There will also be a Pollock-inspired studio project for the kids.

For more information about the museum's Pollock-themed programs, please contact John Bomhoff, Art Studio Manager.
