Walls of Color: The Murals of Hans Hofmann will headline the museum’s Art Basel season, on view through January 3, 2016. The exhibition focuses on the artist’s public mural projects, and also includes several key later paintings. It features nine oil studies (each seven feet tall) for the redesign of the Peruvian city of Chimbote (Hoffman’s visionary collaboration in 1950 with Catalan architect Jose Luis Sert that was never realized). The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Closed on Monday and on most legal and university holidays. Admission is free.
