Art Alive

Sat, Nov 6, 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 Saturday, Artist Educator Angelica Pomar will be on the floor of Craft Front and Center facilitating an activity inspired by Terese Agnew’s Portrait of a Textile Worker (2005). Participants will discuss Agnew’s work in relation to labor practices for fashion industry factory workers and complete an activity on recycled fabric portraits.

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