Frank Stella Prints, the artist's first major print retrospective since 1982, will be on display during our visit to the Addison Gallery at Phillips Academy, home to one of the most important collections of American art in the country. The exhibition of 100 prints offers a view of Stella's stylistic evolution--a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of his early years to the baroque exuberance of his later gestural work. Also on view during our visit is Respect Existence or Expect Resistance: Civil Rights Era Photographs from the Collection, 38 photographs that attest to the important role that photography played in the Civil Rights movement. Lunch at the Andover Inn (pay individually). Van departs Cafe Tatte, 70 Charles St, at 9:30 a.m., and Starbucks, 165 Newbury St (between Dartmouth and Exeter), at 9:35 a.m. BHV members $30. Guests of members and prospective members: $40. Price includes van transportation and tour of the Gallery.
