Studio: Put it on a Shelf
Inspired by Rashid Johnson’s use of shelves, work with artist Alex Chitty to design a shelf where you can place objects that tell the story of who you are.

Studio: Personal prints
Similar to Rashid Johnson’s use of symbols to tell stories, create your own personal design and spend time printing your symbol with artist Kristin Sabatino.

Performance: Douglas Ewart
11:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm
Delight in the lively artwork of Douglas Ewart’s spinning tops. Each performance lasts 20 minutes and is followed by time for you to talk with the artist and hear the story of his spinning tops.
