Our December Drop-in Drawing program is facilitated by Museum staff and guest artist facilitator Ada Pilar Cruz, and will be held in Gallery 413: Touching the Void. In addition to self-guided drawing prompts, this session will feature short artist-led demos/lessons throughout the evening. Drop-In Drawing takes place in conjunction with MoMA’s UNIQLO NYC Nights event where the museum is open late on the first Friday of every month and admission is free for New Yorkers.
Drawing prompts will be available in English and Spanish.
Ada Pilar Cruz is a ceramist and printmaker. She received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1987. Her printmaking works are imprints of natural and found objects that reflect the natural and urban landscape in which they were gathered. Her clay figurations reflect human energies and are made for shrines or altars placed within nature or interior spaces. She has been a museum educator since 1995, at both MoMA and the Drawing Center. She is a member of Taller Boricua’s Rafael Tufino Print Shop in East Harlem and the Buster Levi Gallery in Cold Spring, NY.
