Sam Gilliam (b. Tupelo, MS) was a key figure in the Washington Color School (1950s-1960s) and a color field painter. In an effort to display flat planes of color in a new format, Gilliam, removed his canvases from their stretchers and created three-dimensional draped sculpture. While Gilliam is best known for these "drape paintings", he is also recognized for his two dimensional collages, prints and works on paper. Gilliam is a great lover of jazz music and this edition pays homage to the musical programming of Lincoln Center.
