Rothko Chapel’s. 50th Anniversary. Feb 26 – 28, 2021
This year, the Rothko Chapel celebrates 50 years as a landmark of modern sacred art, as a celebrated site for transformative and inspirational experiences, and as an organization working at the vanguard of human rights, social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
John and Dominique de Menil first revealed Rothko Chapel to the public over three days, February 26-28, 1971. Since its dedication, the Rothko Chapel has served as a spiritual space, a forum for world leaders, and a place for solitude and gathering.
Now, on that same weekend 50 years later, the Rothko Chapel will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a series of events that honor the Chapel’s legacy, spanning the breadth of offerings that the Chapel is known for—from performances and interfaith experiences to discussions and conversations on the critical issues of the day—reinvigorating the Chapel’s renown for inspiration and contemplation.
We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion for the Rothko Chapel, a tribute to our longstanding relationship with our friend and colleague Mark Rothko, who had his first exhibition with Pace Gallery in 1978.
