The Louis K. Meisel Gallery occupies 20,000 square feet (that’s about four times the area of a basketball court!) Credited with coining the term “Photorealism,” Meisel became a pioneer of Photorealist art, championing the work of now renowned painters. Our group will be treated to a private discussion with Mr. Louis Meisel, gallery owner and author of numerous books including the definitive volumes on Photorealism. We’ll tour the space that boasts the work of many of the original Photorealist artists, plus the new generation of the finest realist painters and sculptors in the world.
We will dine at Freeman’s Restaurant, a clandestine colonial American tavern restaurant, inspired by Old-World traditions and hiding in not-so-plain-sight.
Following lunch, we will head to the groundbreaking exhibition, “Judy Chicago: Herstory” at the New Museum. This survey spans Judy Chicago’s sixty-year career encompassing the full breadth of the artist’s contributions across painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, textiles, photography, stained glass, needlework, and printmaking. Chicago is best known for her Dinner Party icon of feminist art. Expands the boundaries of a traditional museum survey, the exhibition will place six decades of Chicago’s work in dialogue with work by other women across centuries in a unique Fourth Floor installation.
This ACP Roadtrip includes charter bus travel, private tour + discussion with Louis Meisel of Meisel Gallery, lunch, and guided tour of Judy Chicago Retrospective at the New Museum.
