Open Studio From Home:
Book Party with Susan Meiselas

SAT, Mar 20, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

In this special Open Studio From Home, we will be joined by award-winning Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas. Together we will celebrate the publication of her new book, Eyes Open: 23 Photography Projects for Curious Kids (Aperture, 2021)! Eyes Open presents fun projects that encourage kids to explore the world around them through photography. Meiselas says, “The camera can be a way of connecting to people and places while also expressing yourself.”

We will take a look inside Eyes Open and hear from Susan Meiselas herself. Then, we will explore photography together as we respond to one of the prompts featured in the book. 

This special Open Studio from Home is presented in collaboration with Aperture.
