The Getty presents "All About Rothko" this month, with two events, the first of which happens today. Insight into Mark Rothko's philosophy comes from his son, Christopher, who edited and recently published his father's long-lost text, "The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art." This afternoon's lecture is titled, "Mark Rothko's Crystal Ball," and focuses on the artist's work and writings. A lecture and concert called, "Sounds and Space in the Rothko Chapel," is scheduled for later this month.
