Transform Yourself!

Workshop | Remake yourself using some of the techniques applied by Broad collection artists. Families will leave this workshop with a one-of-a-kind photograph inspired by the artistic practices of sculptor Charles Ray, whose work demonstrates his interest in sculpture, scale and everyday life, and Barbara Kruger, who explores mass media, gender roles and political issues.

Recycle and Accessorize!

Workshop | Mark Bradford is known for using discarded materials found on the streets of cities such as advertisements, flyers, billboards, comic books and more. Bradford applies many layers of these materials on the surface of his canvases, and then cuts, tears and sands them down to create his artwork. Create a wearable accessory made of recycled materials inspired by Bradford’s process and technique.

Carlos Cruz-Diez

Workshop | Visit Carlos Cruz-Diez's brightly colored ephemeral intervention, Couleur Additive, at the corner of Grand Avenue & 2nd Street, then explore color interaction by making original designs with markers, clear film and a paper cutout. Using Cruz-Diez's additive color principles, families will make their own sample of a color additive.

Urban Farm-to-Table Cooking

Demonstration | Join Otium's Chef Terry for an interactive sushi demonstration on how to make your own California hand rolls at home! Cooking demonstrations take place every hour on the hour. Space is limited.

Family Friendly Pop-Up Talks
