In this interactive workshop, artist Jeanine Oleson (American, b. 1974) investigates how the vocal and visual components of language can be broken down from their logical formations to offer other means of expression through tactile and physical engagement. Participants explore language and utterance through a series of exercises. Ideas emerging from these exercises will be “scored” through touch, culminating in a group performance.

Space is limited. Sign up is first come, first served in the Cullman Education and Research Building beginning at 2:00 p.m. on the day of each program.

Studios are free, interactive spaces offering drop-in programs and artist- and educator-led workshops to visitors of all ages in conjunction with an exhibition or a topic related to modern and contemporary art. These experiences complement looking and talking about works of art in the galleries, allowing for engagement with art in participatory, creative ways. Visitors can experiment, play, and create as they make connections between their lives, their own creativity, and the processes and materials of modern and contemporary art. Learn more
