More About the Author

Helen A. Harrison is an art historian, museum director and journalist who specializes in modern American art. A native of New York City, she received an A.B in studio art from Adelphi University, and studied sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum School of Art and Hornsey College of Art in London. She also holds an M.A. in art history from Case Western Reserve University, where her research focused on the New Deal federal art patronage programs.

In 1990, after serving as Curator of the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York, Director of the Public Art Preservation Committee in Manhattan, and Curator of Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, New York, Harrison became Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, a National Historic Landmark and research collection in East Hampton that is administered by the Stony Brook Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of Stony Brook University. She has also been a Guest Curator at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing, New York, has taught at the School of Visual Arts, and currently holds an adjunct faculty position in Stony Brook's Department of Art, Art History and Art Criticism.

From 1978-2006, Harrison wrote art reviews and feature articles for the Long Island section of The New York Times. She was the visual arts commentator for WLIU 88.3 FM, Long Island University's NPR-affiliated radio station, from 2004-2009. Her articles, essays and reviews have appeared in numerous scholarly and popular publications, including the Journal of American Studies (U.K.), Prospects, the Archives of American Art Journal, American Art, Provincetown Arts, and Winterthur Portfolio. She writes a monthly column, "Eye on Art," for the Sag Harbor Express.

Harrison is the author of many exhibition catalogues and chapters in several multi-author publications, including Abstract Expressionism: The International Context (Rutgers University Press, 2007), Remembering the Future (Rizzoli, 1989), and The American Art Book (Phaidon, 1999), for which she wrote 110 entries. Her books include Dawn of a New Day: The New York World's Fair 1939/40 (New York University Press, 1980), a monograph on the artist Larry Rivers (Harper & Row, 1984), an anthology, Such Desperate Joy: Imagining Jackson Pollock (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2000), Hamptons Bohemia: Two Centuries of Artists and Writers on the Beach with co-author Constance Ayres Denne (Chronicle Books, 2002), and The Jackson Pollock Box (Cider Mill Press/Simon & Schuster, 2010). She is currently at work on a Jackson Pollock monograph that will be published by Phaidon in 2014. She lives with her husband, the artist Roy Nicholson, in Sag Harbor, New York.

I bought this for my kids and they love it! It's a great introduction to Pollock and his work, a well-written and accessible read, and the included art supplies provided everything necessary for my kids to attempt Pollock-inspired art projects. Plus, the full color images within the book are gorgeous. I love this kit, and recommend it to all!

we order these a half-dozen at a time. it's a perfect gift for kids 8 and above (our daughter gives them to all her friends for birthday gifts) and any artsy adults. it's smartly packaged and we think well-priced.

I had to purchase this box for a class. The book on Pollock's life and work as generic and annoyingly upbeat. The acryillic paints within were basic colors and stain everything (get tempera). If you want to know about Pollock, find a free bio online and check out this film made about Pollock's life: Pollock (Special Edition).

As for the projects, you'll be better off putting paint to paper and letting it out however you want to.
