REGULAR HOURS: TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY,

10 AM TO 4 PM
50 years ago, artists like Sigmar Polke and Andy Warhol mined popular imagery from their time to express their own concepts. In the past 20 years, artists have made work that comments/references on other artist's work. Artist Charley Friedman will lead a workshop where he will look at works by contemporary artists and discuss how artists today are using art around them to propel their own distinct message.
Video and performance will be used to create humorous performative skits that engage the conceptual and material strategies found in the collection. Each day participants will respectfully tour the collection and brainstorm different scenarios for their own projects.
Students will work collaboratively bouncing ideas off one another. In addition to having the students make art in a manner that they are perhaps unfamiliar, by engaging with the collection they will become intimately aware of how contemporary art is a vital reflection of one's time and moment.
