In this painting by Man Ray from 1938, a billiard table stretches toward the horizon. Rainbow-colored clouds float above it. This is a landscape of the mind, a product of the artist’s vivid imagination. He said: “I did not wish to paint anything realistic or even descriptive. There is always an idea behind each of my paintings. It's the idea that interests me, not the description."

Together, we will make our own mini books. Then we will fill them with surreal drawings from our imaginations!

  • The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
