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

The Cleveland Museum of Art is full of interesting and dynamic spaces, which includes an Atrium and gallery spaces of varying sizes. My time within the gallery spaces included viewing Jacob Lawrence “The Toussaint L’Ouverture Series” and permanent collection.
