Hands On: Build a Kingdom

On Sunday, August 16th from 2-4pm families are invited to a drop-in workshop inspired by Lauren Halsey’s artwork in the Everything, Everyday exhibition at The Studio Museum in Harlem. As a 2014-15 Artist in Residence Lauren constructed one of her “kingdoms,” built environments that combine contemporary and ancient imagery with materials ranging from crystals and LEDs to lasers, iridescent light and more in the Mezzanine Gallery space. Families are invited to think on how might they build their own kingdom and create their own sculptural creations.

Below are some photographs I took of the installation at The Studio Museum in Harlem
