02/05 Kid's Art Workshop

This Saturday, we will take a snowy walk through the woods to visit Mary Ann Unger's bonded iron sculpture, Untitled (Misericordia), 1990. Her sculptures remind us of "hot dogs talking to each other" and "rotten bananas", but what was the artist herself thinking when she designed this and other free standing metal works? Get the inside scoop!

Back in the studio, we will navigate MOMA's interactive website for kids, "Destination Modern Art", where we will follow a little alien through the museum's contemporary art  collection. Choosing our own adventure, we will stop along the way to LISTEN, WATCH, CREATE, and LEARN about ARTISTS, PROCESS, IDEAS and MEDIA. Children will participate by making drawings, poems, maps and more. Join us for this intergalactic mission to MOMA and P.S.1 without leaving the comfort of Omi!
