A multitude of communities are reflected within the exhibition American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection. What can a community be? In what ways do artists express their own identity through the process of making? Participants will think about these questions and more in the galleries. Back in the studio, they will create their own original artworks in response.
Families and Folk Art introduces children ages 4 to 12 and their accompanying adults to folk art through interactive discussion-based tours in the galleries followed by hands-on artmaking activities inspired by objects in the museum. Space is limited; registration required. More info: 212. 265. 1040, ext. 381, or familyprograms@folkartmuseum.
Families and Folk Art is supported by the estate of Marlene Gordon.
