Virtual Happenings

Social distancing doesn't have to mean distance from the arts. The arts help us connect as a community and understand the world around us. Virtually tour exhibitions and even find projects for the kids.

Get Creative

Social STUDIO fosters community through conversation, creativity, and collaboration. That's true in real life, and virtually, too.

Want to learn more about our Artist-in-Residence Taylor Wright Rushing? Check out the video below for a tour of his Atlanta-based studio, where he surrounds himself with objects that inspire him as he works on his illustrations, instruments, and tramp art-inspired whittling.

Taylor Wright Rushing—Whittle a Critter >

Our Artist-in-Residence Vanessa Andrew wants to change the way people think about clothing: Less fast fashion and more recycled, sustainable approaches to the way we fill our closets.

In the video below, Andrew, a fiber artist, gives a guided tour of Madam Chino, her Milwaukee boutique and workspace. Andrew explains how recycled textiles, which might have been thrown away, form the foundation of her artistic practice. In doing so, Andrew is following the tradition of JMKAC artists—Mary Nohl to Eugene Von Bruenchenhein to Tom "Dr. Evermor" Every—who saw artistic potential in others' unwanted items.
