Then, curator Harry Cooper walks Bob through the new exhibit In the Tower: Mark Rothko at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building Tower Gallery. This is a rare chance to see Rothko’s 1964 black-on-black canvases that the artists created in conjunction with his work for the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas. [Broadcast Date: May 25, 2010]
