For kids ages seven to fourteen and their adult companions

Saturday, February 23, 2013, 1:00–2:30 p.m.

Theater 3 (The Celeste Bartos Theater), mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building

Hear from contemporary artists as they share their art-making techniques and sources of inspiration. Presentations are followed by a special Q&A.

Susan Kaprov describes her studio as a laboratory and her art as a series of "research projects" in which self-imposed, challenging themes are explored in depth. In her drawings, animated videos, painted jigsaw puzzles, and public art installations, she often sets shifting shapes, rhythmic spatial conundrums, and eye-popping colors in opposition to one another, forging a complex yet playful visual drama.

The conversation will be followed by a special collaborative art-making project lead by the artist. Supplies for the event are provided by Montana Cans.

Admission is free. Preregistration is required.

Registration will take place online beginning at 10:30 a.m. ten days before the program.
