Meg Perlman, the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center's founding director, died on June 1 from complications of an aortic dissection. She was 71 years old. We mourn her loss and extend sincere condolences to her husband, Doug Garr, son Jake, and their family.
From 1987-89, Meg oversaw the transformation of Lee Krasner's East Hampton property into the "public museum and library" the artist envisioned. She discovered the studio floor that documents Pollock's most famous poured paintings, arranged for its conservation, and established the public programming that continues today.
