Photography: Focusing on Identity

For kids ages ten to fourteen and their adult companions

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine



A special two-hour workshop for families. Kids and adults explore works in the collection and special exhibitions, then use their experience in the galleries as inspiration in art-making workshops.

In her photographs, artist Cindy Sherman alters her appearance to create scenes from movies, magazines, and history. We’ll explore themes of identity and representation in an exhibition of her work, then create our own images in this photography workshop.

In conjunction with the exhibition Cindy Sherman
