“Through color, I have sought to concentrate on beauty and happiness, rather than on man’s inhumanity to man.” –Alma Woodsey Thomas Now known for her joyful abstract paintings, Thomas taught art for 35 years in a segregated junior high school in Washington, D.C., but didn’t focus on her artistic career until after she retired in 1960 at the age of 69. Drop in “The Long Run” Rampant Abstraction gallery to see her rhythmic, pulsing “Fiery Sunset,” now on view alongside late-career work by Willem de Kooning, Ken Price, Elizabeth Murray, and more. … [Credit: Alma Woodsey Thomas. “Fiery Sunset.” 1973.

Look at the film in a new way with John Lauris Jensen’s storyboards for “The Nutty Professor,” a recent gift to MoMA Collection, now on view in our theater galleries. … [Nutty Professor Storyboards. Directed by Jerry Lewis. Storyboards by John Jensen. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of Chris Lewis.]
