True Colors

A full range of color’s magic is on display in this exuberant show

of over 100 works from the 19th century to the current hot talents.

From Monet and Matisse to Mark Rothko and Frank Stella,

and onward to the huge Color Field canvases and pulsing neon

sculptures of today, color as a means of expression is the keynote for

this exhibition. Nassau County Museum of Art, 1 Museum Drive,
