A performance-inspired family art workshop and 6-day Kids Art Camp is happening in July. Made In L.A. continues at the Gallery with a free performance by Simone Forti.
FAMILY ART WORKSHOP
Hats and Mats: Art and Performance
Saturday, July 21, 2012: 1:00–4:00 PM / FREE
Inspired by the works by Ry Rocklen and Michele O’Marah – currently on view in Made in L.A., – “Hats and Mats” explores the transformative power of Rocklen’s found objects and the wearable hats by O’Marah that blend sculpture, fashion, and whimsy, and beg to be worn and paraded. Kids will make their own fantasy hats and mats and use them as costumes and sources of play and performance.
