Families and Folk Art: Memory Palaces

Creating a memory palace is a way of organizing information in our mind so that we can recall details more easily. More than seventy artists in the current exhibition created their own memory palaces, and built their own mysterious, complex, and visually stunning universes. Participants will explore select artworks on a guided tour, then return to the studio and make their own 3D interpretation of a memory palace.

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, orĀ

Families and Folk Art is supported by the estate of Marlene Gordon.
