Take Care with Art After Dark
Slow Dance, Music, and Art Making
Wednesday, October 21, 6–7:30 pm
FREE virtual program • Register for link
Join the Smart Museum of Art for a virtual gathering that mixes art inquiry, music sharing, and communal art making.
Led by Mayra Cecilia Palafox, this program is inspired by Slow Dance by Kerry James Marshall, a painting that is included in our current exhibition Take Care. As we make close observations, discuss his process of color mixing, the mood of the painting, and the two figures, we will also think of what songs come to mind and how that makes us feel. There will be space to share our artworks, process, and listen to music as we spend time together.
FREE. Join in from home—participants are encouraged to use readily available materials during this live art-making session. To help build a community of participants, capacity is limited and advanced registration is required.
