Experiments in Form: Sam Gilliam, Alan Shields, Frank Stella. Moving beyond the experiments of other painters of the era, Sam Gilliam saturated raw, unstretched canvas with acrylic to create works that lie at the intersection of painting and sculpture. The Block Museum presents a focused exhibition of works by artists engaged with abstraction and the expansion of painting in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s.
