All Junior Council events include special viewings of Museum exhibitions or films, a discussion by Museum scientists, and a cocktail reception. The Junior Council kicks off its 2013-2014 season with a private screening of the giant-screen film Penguins and a cocktail reception. Penguin City, on the remote island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean, is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals, and brawling elephant seals, as well as 6 million penguins. The young male King Penguin at the center of Penguins must earn his place among the island inhabitants while finding a mate and raising a family. The film follows him through the most challenging time in a King Penguin’s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators.

Devoted exclusively to papier collés and related works on paper from the 1940s and early 1950s by Robert Motherwell, this exhibition features nearly sixty artworks and examines the American artist's origins and his engagement with collage. Motherwell initially produced both figural and abstract collages, but by the early 1950s Surrealist influences prevalent in these first works had given way to his distinctive mature style, which was firmly rooted in Abstract Expressionism.
At the heart of Christopher Wool's creative project, which spans three decades of highly focused practice, is the question of how a picture can be conceived, realized, and experienced today. Engaging the complexities of painting as a medium, as well as the anxious rhythms of the urban environment and a wide range of cultural references, his agile, largely monochrome works propose an open-ended series of responses to this central problem. This retrospective will fill the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda and an adjacent gallery with a rich selection of paintings, photographs, and works on paper, forming the most comprehensive examination to date of Wool's career
