Benenson Center

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.

Jul 6 – Aug 21

Camp Omi in a Box is a weekly subscription to a series of make-at-home art projects, online tutorials, and interactive online gatherings that capture the mission and spirit of Art Omi’s popular Camp Omi and Artgarten programs. Anchored by a weekly box of specialty art materials, tools, and products Camp Omi in a Box includes activity prompts and access to exclusive online tutorials by Camp Omi Teaching Artists. Children may participate in a single week, or the whole seven-week program.

Camp Omi in a Box is designed for kids ages 6-10, and includes socially distanced in person sessions every Monday and Friday from 9 am - noon. Camp Omi in a Box: Artgarten provides projects for kids ages 3-5 with pick-ups on the Friday before the Monday session. Projects are supplemented with Google Meet sessions, where Campers learn and share! Younger children in both programs will need parent assistance and/or supervision. While some projects are designed to be more independent than others, we like to think of the program as fun and engaging for the whole family!
