Art Alive in the Galleries

Sat, Sep 18, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, an intergenerational drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience inspired by MAD's current exhibitions. This Saturday, artist-educators and practicing artists will be stationed throughout the Museum leading focused discussions of works on view and art activities using sustainable and recycled materials.

Art Alive is free with Museum admission. Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 12 and 2 pm and stay as long as they like. The program is offered in accordance with the Museum’s safe social-distancing practices.

Floor 2: Based on Joyce J. Scott’s Voices (1993), 2020 Artist Studios resident Kazue Taguchi will lead a jewelry making workshop using beads in the exhibition 45 Stories in Jewelry: 1947 to Now.

Floor 4: 2019 Artist Studios resident Chang Yuchen will be in Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times where she will engage visitors in “social crocheting.” This group activity will explore the themes of creative reuse, collaboration, and community central to Pepe’s Common Sense installation.
