It was also fascinating that I entered the theater thinking I knew the actor playing Rothko - my ArtWorks colleague Burdette Parks. But Rothko was played by Rothko! I guess it was Burdette, but he was marvelously transformed into someone I had not met before. Someone who could be loud, opinionated, sometime rude and obnoxious. I loved it!
In May, we visited the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC. We didn't do much homework and had limited time, and we got to the Phillips with only about an hour and a half to explore the whole place before they closed. Not enough to really sit and observe as I would have preferred.
