Art Alive for Families

Sun, Jul 11, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience for kids and their families that takes place every Sunday. This Sunday, 2019 Artist Studio resident Rachel Grobstein will be on the floor of Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times facilitating discussions of Sheila Pepe's Votive Moderns. Visitors will also be invited to participate in an art-making project inspired by the exhibition. Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 11 am and 1 pm and stay as long as they like. The program is offered in accordance with the Museum’s safe social-distancing practices.

About the artist

Rachel Grobstein creates miniature paintings and sculptures, employing a radical scale shift and handmade detail to invite close scrutiny of often-overlooked parts of daily life, exploring memory, routine, and identity. In addition to her residency at MAD, she received a Roswell Artist-in-Residence Fellowship, a Jentel Foundation fellowship, a Hammersley Foundation Grant, a Studios of Key West residency, and a Vermont Studio Center Full Fellowship and Residency supported by the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Solo exhibitions include Galleri Urbane (Dallas, TX 2020), Andrew Rafacz Gallery (Chicago, IL 2018), Next to Nothing Gallery (New York, NY, 2018), and the Roswell Museum and Art Center (Roswell, NM, 2017). Grobstein received her MFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and her BA in Philosophy and Visual Arts from Bowdoin College. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
