Art Alive

Thu, Oct 28 / 4 pm

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 Thursday, Artist Educator Alana Wiley will be on the floor of Craft Front and Center facilitating discussions inspired by Marvin Lipofksy’s Otaru Series # 1 (1987). Wiley will be talking about the glass blowing process, explaining how layers of glass are created and how colors are added. Participants will investigate how Lipofsky layered transparent colors to create texture and then create 2D sketches for blown glass objects. The activity will also consider how other glass artists in the room have approached form and color.

Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 4 and 6 pm and stay as long as they like. Art Alive is free with admission, which is discounted 50%  on Thursdays, 3–6 pm. The program is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and visitors must be masked at all times.
