Free Family Day / Dia de la Familia
April 20, 11:30 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
Experience the exhibitions at the Arts Center together! Join us for our first, free Family Day. The galleries and lower level studios will buzz with activities and hands-on projects that explore the idea of setting a scene, the concept behind the exhibition series titled Mise-en-Scène. Education staff and docents will be available to answer questions as you go into the galleries with a fresh approach.
No registration required.
More family days to come in September and November! Stay tuned for more info.

Workshop with Artist Maggie Sasso

Join Exhibition Artist-in-Residence Maggie Sasso for a hands-on workshop in The ARTery exploring patches—not the patches earned through groups like the Girl/Boy Scouts, but rather our own imagined patches.
Workshops with artist Beatriz Cortez
Saturday, May 18, 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. (Bilingual)
Saturday, May 25, 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Workshop participants will spend their time working with Los Angeles-based artist Beatriz Cortez learning firsthand about ancient indigenous forms of construction in relation to her installation The Lakota Porch: A Time Traveler, included in The Autotopographers exhibition.
We will explore the construction of cairns, or markers with rocks, and we will talk about different methods and technologies for piling rocks, as well as conceptual understandings about permanence and mobility, nomadism and fixed demarcation of territories and structures. In addition, we will talk about ancient concepts of geometry, math, space, and gravity.
