MADmakes with Emily Oliveira

Thu, Feb 15 / 6 pm

Join artist-in-residence Emily Oliveira to experiment with mixed-media jewelry making. Use paint to create vibrating patterns on a variety of pasta shapes, and finish the high-low look by carefully applying rhinestones to the pasta “beads.” Visitors will leave with a playful, updated version of the classic elementary school macaroni necklace and a new relationship to material, pattern, and texture. 

Led by MAD’s artists-in-residence, MADmakes is a drop-in, hands-on series where visitors can test their skills at art making and creative production. MADmakes provides an opportunity for visitors to better understand and appreciate the workmanship that goes into contemporary studio practice today. Visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels are invited to create something new every month.
