Families and Folk Art: Painted Photography

Many of the artists in PHOTO | BRUT: Collection Bruno Decharme & Compagnie have reinvented what it means to be a photographer. They have created unique approaches to taking pictures, and often manipulated the image to capture our imagination in unexpected ways. Explore the wide variety of photography in the galleries, and participate in a workshop that combines polaroid photography and painting.

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

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