How do images shape our understanding of current and historical events? In this live virtual workshop we will explore artworks from two current exhibitions Anthem (Weinberg/Newton Gallery) and What Does Democracy Look Like? (Museum of Contemporary Photography) as inspiration for new photographs. Working with a camera and everyday materials such as copy paper, paper clippings, and small objects, we will create compositions to tell a story.

This workshop is created in partnership with Weinberg/Newton Gallery and will be lead by Lisa Lindvay, Education Coordinator at Weinberg/Newton Gallery

This event will be recorded and transcribed.  If you require special accommodations for this event, please contact mocp@colum.edu.
