Art Alive

Sat, Oct 16 / 12–2 pm

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 Saturday, Artist Educator Angelica Pomar will be on the floor of Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times facilitating a session where attendees can design button pins using graphics featured in the agitprop work Women’s History Month Stamps (2008). Participants will also be encouraged to create imagery for buttons that relate to social issues they align with. Additionally, Pomar will be talking about gender representation in the arts today. 

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 12 and 2 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.
