The Masters Building, former home of The Riverside Museum, will be 90 years old this month. Now a residential building, The Masters is honoring its artistic heritage with an exhibition of work by New York artist Anna Walinska. Anna Walinska: Return to the Riverside will showcase works created during Walinska’s studio residency at the Masters from 1955 through 1971. The exhibition, curated by Michael Alicia and Jan Fort, includes drawings, paintings and collages that showcase the breadth of Walinska’s range and her talent as an abstract expressionist. On this special tour, Insiders will walkthrough the exhibition with one of the curators, and Walinska's niece and custodian of the estate, Rosina Rubin. Along with a tour of the exhibition, Insiders will also gain access to one of the building's active artist studios and learn about the history of the landmarked building. Anna Walinska: Return to the Riverside will be on view through January 24, 2020.
