Art Alive

Thu, Dec 9, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience taking place every Thursday and Saturday. Each session, a practicing artist or artist educator focuses on a work on view in MAD’s current exhibitions, leading hands-on activities and engaging discussions geared towards an intergenerational audience.

This Thursday, artist educator Hannah Heller will be on the floor of 45 Stories in Jewelry: 1947 to Now, facilitating a project inspired by Joyce J. Scott’s Voices (1993). Participants will draw from Scott’s use of storytelling and conversations to create a piece of jewelry that tells a story about themselves or something they care about. 

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 4 and 6 pm and stay as long as they like. Art Alive is free with admission to MAD. The program is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and visitors must be masked at all times.
