The People’s Studio: Design, Experiment, Build

June 12–October 1, 2017 The Museum of Modern Art
  • The Museum of Modern Art, Floor 3, Exhibition Galleries

In conjunction with the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, the People’s Studio invites visitors to think like designers and explore architecture through themes connected to community, nature, and the integration of art and daily life. Visitors can browse resources, try their hand at drawing and drafting techniques, create with building and design materials, and participate in scheduled workshops, conversations, and other experiences developed in collaboration with artists, architects, and designers.

Activities and events build on the educational principles behind the Taliesin Fellowship, Frank Lloyd Wright’s teaching program at his home and studio, and make connections to the progressive teaching practices of Black Mountain College and MoMA’s own history as a place of learning. The inclusive, collaborative atmosphere of the People’s Studio is inspired by these pivotal moments in modern-art education and the belief that learning should be achieved through active, hands-on experiences that promote social exchange.

Open Saturday–Thursday, 10:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m., and Friday, 10:30 a.m.–8:00 p.m. Free with Museum admission and open to all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
