Art Alive

Thu, Dec 16, 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 leads hands-on activities and engaging discussions geared towards an intergenerational audience.

This Thursday, artist Jennie Maydew will be on the sixth floor classroom facilitating an activity inspired by Carolyn Mazloomi’s The Family... Solid Like A Rock, featured in the recent exhibition Craft Front and Center. Drawing on Mazloomi’s themes of family and stability, attendees will explore how places, people, objects, or feelings can create a sense of comfort. Additionally, they will investigate and celebrate systems of communal and personal support. Responding to these ideas, visitors will create high-contrast paper collages.

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.
