On March 30, Biennial 2012 artist Elaine Reichek met with Youth Insights participants and other New York City teens. Explaining the connections her work creates between contemporary technology and age-old myth, Reichek attracted a crowd of museum-goers. But the embroidery workshop that followed her artist’s talk was for teens only. She demonstrated the basics of the medium, threaded a needle or two, and introduced students to an art form that was entirely new to many.
