Families and Folk Art: Pattern and Repetition

Several artists in the exhibition Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler have created their own visual language, which often include intricate, mesmerizing patterns and dizzying repetition. Participants will explore the artwork on a guided tour, then return to the studio to use mixed media to create their own pieces that focus on detailed patterning.

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.
