Pulitzer Arts Foundation and the Saint Louis Art Museum held this conference in conjunction with their two concurrent openings—Selected Works by Ellsworth Kelly from Saint Louis Collections at the Pulitzer, and Henri Matisse/Ellsworth Kelly: Plant Drawings at the Saint Louis Art Museum. Both institutions invited artists, collectors, students, and university and museum professionals to generate a day-long dialogue about the works of Matisse and Kelly. Ellsworth Kelly also attended the conference, where he was honored as a featured speaker.
