Open Studio: Joel Otterson

For families with kids of all ages

Sat, May 10, 2014  2–4 PM

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

Each month during the 2014 Biennial, the Whitney hosts an art-making workshop that focuses on the work of one artist. In May we will focus on Joel Otterson’s sculptural installation. Visit the fourth floor to see a tent with delicate lace, a sparkling beaded curtain, and colorful chandeliers made of glass goblets. Then join us to transform everyday objects into three-dimensional works of art!

Free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
