Art inSight at Home: Ed Ruscha

December 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free, registration required

Art inSight at Home is an online program for individuals who are blind or have low vision. In each session, staff educators highlight specific themes, artists, or exhibitions through verbal description and discussion using the Zoom platform.

In this interactive session, we will have a conversation about the current exhibition ED RUSCHA / NOW THEN with the curatorial team. Artist Ed Ruscha has recorded and transformed familiar subjects—whether roadside gasoline stations or the 20th Century Fox logo—often revisiting motifs, sites, or words years later. Together we will trace shifts in the artist’s means and methods over time in works that make use of everything from gunpowder to chocolate.

Art inSight at Home is free of charge. Participants may join with the Zoom app or website, or toll free via phone.

Space is limited, and preregistration is required. Please register at least 24 hours in advance of the program to ensure you receive the Zoom login information. Register today

For more information, please call Access Programs at 212-408-6447 or email

The gas station fills the left of the canvas at a diagonal from the top left corner to the bottom right, splitting the painting into two triangles. A small yellow comic book torn down the middle is painted in the top right corner.
