Studio Squared: Around the Table with Aaron Fowler at The Studio Musuem in Harlem
Sunday, November 22nd @ 3:30p - 6:00pm
Nov. 13, 2015
Aaron Fowler will participate in "Studio Squared" at The Studio Museum in Harlem on November 22nd. "Studio Squared" is a series of informal art-making workshops aimed at making a wide range of studio practices accessible to adult audiences. Each workshop focuses on a particular theme and creative process inspired by our exhibitions, and explores methods of creative production through an experiential approach.
Designed to engage the concept of the collective around the hallmark of Thanksgiving, this edition of Studio Squared invites exhibiting artist Aaron Fowler to build upon his most recent body of work, which explores the notion of triumph through pilgrimage. The program will begin with a tour of his deeply personal work included in A Constellation, during which Fowler will discuss the experiences surrounding his own pilgrimage from St. Louis to New York. The program will then move into the Museum's workshop, where participants will gather around the table and translate their communal experiences into drawing studies of those seated across from them. Fowler will then guide participants in collaboratively rendering these individual portraits in acrylic paint onto a large, shared canvas framed by the Thanksgiving dinner table motif.
Come and join fellow art-enthusiasts in this fun and informal hands-on workshop that inspires the maker in all of us! Seating will be limited so RSVP is required. Refreshments will be served and art supplies provided!
This program is free courtesy of Target Free Sundays. To reserve seating in advance, please reserve a free ticket. All seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
