That day is the actual birthday of the late artist and Springs resident. The evening will feature art, nature, and a $30 prix fixe menu, with recipes inspired by Jackson Pollock.
Originally from Wyoming, Jackson Pollock was a resident of Springs from the mid 1940’s until his death in 1956. Famously known for his ‘drip paintings,’ he created many of his well-known works in his studio on Springs Fireplace Road, minutes away from The Springs Tavern. Pollock converted the barn into a studio. He lived in Springs with his wife and fellow artist, Lee Krasner.
