Spring 1950

Motherwell writes the catalogue essay for David Smith's exhibition at the Marion Willard Gallery (March 27-April 21). Motherwell and Robert Goodnough moderate a three-day symposium (April 21-23), with twenty-five artists and Museum of Modern Art curator Alfred H. Barr, Jr. at Studio 35 to mark the closing of the school; a transcript of the symposium will later be published as the ''Artist Sessions at Studio 35.''
