Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience taking place every Thursday and Saturday. Each session, a practicing artist or artist educator focuses on a work on view in MAD’s current exhibitions, leading hands-on activities and engaging discussions geared towards an intergenerational audience.

This Saturday, artiat Jennie Maydew will be on the floor of Craft Front and Center facilitating an activity inspired by Carolyn Mazloomi, The Family... Solid Like A Rock (1991-93)Participants will investigate and celebrate systems of communal and personal support. Drawing on Mazloomi’s themes of family and stability, attendees will explore how places, people, objects, or feelings can create a sense of comfort. In response to these ideas, visitors will create high-contrast paper collages.

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 12 pm and 2 pm and stay as long as they like. Art Alive is free with admission to MAD. The program is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and visitors must be masked at all times.
