Let’s Make Art! Family Workshop at Home: Takashi Murakami

Overview

Create your own accordion book inspired by Broad collection artist Takashi Murakami!

In his massive 82-foot long painting titled In the Land of the Dead, Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow (2014), Murakami intended the artwork to be experienced as if you were reading a page in a book; the story begins on the left side and continues as you walk along the canvas to the right.

About Let's Make Art! Family Workshop at Home

The Un-Private Collection is an ongoing series of public programs The Broad began in September 2013. The series introduces audiences to the museum’s 2,000-work contemporary art collection by showcasing stories behind the collection, the collectors and the artists. Since launching the program, The Broad has brought together a variety of artists whose works are in the Broad collection in conversation with cultural leaders, including Mark Bradford with Katy Siegel, Shirin Neshat with Christy MacLear, Jeff Koons with John Waters, Takashi Murakami with Pico Iyer, Eric Fischl with Steve Martin, John Currin with James Cuno, Kara Walker with Ava DuVernay and architect Elizabeth Diller with Eli Broad, Joanne Heyler and Paul Goldberger. Talks have been held at venues throughout Los Angeles, making the programming available to audiences across the city. Conversations are live-streamed and full videos of past talks are available online. The Un-Private Collection series is part of the Broad collection’s 30-year mission to make contemporary art accessible to the widest possible audience.
