We like to see families looking and learning and being together at the Museum. I look forward to Saturday, April 30, when three of the Biennial artists will be here to meet families. Each of these artists enjoys sharing their ideas with young people. The artist Carly Glovinski will show the materials (phone books!) that make up her 617, 857 floor sculpture. Alicia Eggert will help us see her work Wonder and show us how to approach her sculpture (slowly from 10 feet away and squint your eyes at a certain point!) and will also show us some of the small motors that operate her art. And Alisha Gould will share her preliminary drawings and the tiny models for her very large Ejecta sculpture.
We’ll also have an art-making event created by Carly Glovinski. Her art is fun to investigate and requires lots of looking again and looking more closely and asking questions. Carly likes to look at everyday objects that are easy to overlook—cheeseburger wrappers, kitchen towels, plastic grocery bags—and she’ll be asking for lots of help in creating art in the Great Hall that will appear to be an ordinary common object (an extension cord) but (you’ll see…) is only “acting” like one!
Join Julia and the Biennial artists Carly, Alicia, and Alisha on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Stay on for art-making with Carly from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Both events are free with Museum admission. Learn more…
