Art Alive

Thu, Nov 4, 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 Alayna Wiley, will be on the floor of Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times, facilitating a project inspired by Shelia Pepe’s Just this Corner (2020). Participants will learn about abstraction and create art with upcycled fabric patches using embroidery techniques.

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 4 pm and 6 pm and stay as long as they like. Art Alive is free with admission to MAD, which is 50% discounted on Thursdays. The program is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and visitors must be masked at all times.
