Architecture Opening: Single-Handedly and InConstruction: SO – IL
Join us for openings of Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand, and InConstruction: SO - IL. Featuring refreshments and remarks from the exhibiting architects.
Single-Handedly collects original drawings from a group of accomplished contemporary architects who, in an industry dominated by digital technologies, continue to work by hand. This exhibition is co-curated by Warren James, Director, Art Omi: Architecture; and Nalina Moses.
InConstruction: SO - IL presents a model of Site Verrier de Meisenthal (2015), a cultural center in an 18th century glass factory, composed of three independent, interrelated institutions.
Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in the Sculpture & Architecture Park and Newmark Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
