Open Studio: Dona Nelson

For families with kids of all ages

Sat, Mar 8, 2014  2–4 PM

Location: Whitney Studio located in the Museum’s Sculpture Court

Each month during the 2014 Biennial, the Whitney is hosting an art-making workshop that focuses on the work of one artist. Bring your family to learn about an artist’s practice and experiment with materials. To kick off the program series, explore Dona Nelson’s colorful, textured, two-sided paintings. Create your own unconventional paintings using a range of materials!

Free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
