Family Weekend Workshops | April 2017
Family Weekend Workshops are back, with new activities for 2017! Family Weekend Workshops offer families with children activities and workshops to engage with the artworks in the collection, as well as with Chef Timothy Hollingsworth of Otium, The Broad's partner restaurant. Workshops are presented bilingually in English and Spanish and give families the opportunity to make their own creative souvenirs to take home inspired by the Broad collection. Family Weekend Workshops are free, but have limited availability and entrance is not guaranteed without a reservation.
Remake yourself using some of the techniques applied by artists Takashi Murakami and Keith Haring, whose works are on view in the third-floor galleries. From Murakami’s interest in toys, anime, and video games, to Haring’s use of iconic linear shapes and pulsing movement, you'll be sure to create a one-of-a-kind self-portrait.
Inspired by El Anatsui 's large quilt-like works in the Broad collection, create your own wearable statement piece made out of the discarded and recycled materials which make up the “fabric” of our lives, and follow Anatsui's vision connecting consumption, waste, and the environment.
As evidenced by a recent surge in social activism, protest posters are a powerful tool in voicing one’s thoughts. Not only are they an opportunity for people to make a statement, they are artistic pieces in their own right. Using paper, markers, and imagery, create your own protest poster and make your own statement. Several artists in the Broad collection, including Barbara Kruger and Christopher Wool, use their art as a tool to make their voices heard.
