Event - Second Sundays for Families

Second Sundays for Families

02.14.16, 1:30 pm

In February, Second Sundays for Families will explore how music, marks, and memory are all connected in our minds.

1-4:30pm: Drop-in Artmaking Workshop
This month’s workshop is inspired by Jerome Foundation Fellow Casey Tang’s artwork on view “FIRST SOUNDS FIRST 500,000 YEARS IN THE AGE OF THE UNIVERSE Key of C 55hz, 2014” which represents the sound of the early universe as a music score on a scroll that is played on a player-piano. We invite participants to draw their own of memories from their lives on to long strips of paper and then play their “memory music” compositions on our upright piano. Location: Skylight Gallery, 1st Floor

1-4pm: Family Art-making Workshops: “Memory Mats” Weaving Past and Present
Connected to our Community Partnership Exhibition Engaging Artists: A selection of works from More Art’s 2015 Engaging Artists Residency More Art teaching artists will lead a textile-based collage activity. Both children (ages 4+) and adults are encouraged to design a set of drawn symbols and brief descriptions of memories on patches of textured fabric. Families will use thread and yarn weave these patches together, incorporating multi-generational perspectives into a single memory mat. The final object can be both decorative and used at family meals. Location: Community Partnership Gallery, 1st Floor

2,3, and 4pm: Exhibition Tours of Catalyst: New Projects by Meredith James, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Casey Tang.

2pm & 3:30pm: Musical Storytelling for Families
