CCA loves museum guards!

Museum Adventures loves the art museum guards!  On one of our recent visits to the Guggenheim Museum of Art, Museum Adventures kids and adults enjoyed the Picasso Black and White exhibit lead by Claire Munday.

“The guards are always interested in what we are doing, the projects we work on and they share such wonderful stories!  For example, it was a curious guard that told me a great story about Picasso while I was building the lesson plan.  He said that when Picasso would go to a restaurant, he would take the insides of the soft french bread and begin rolling and shaping it into sculpture while waiting for his food!  Having such busy hands and always having to be making art would certainly explain why Picasso has so many pieces.” ~ Claire

Create metal art with your child & El Anasui with CCA!

In a special Museum Adventures tour of the Met, we explored the work of Ghanian artist El Anatsui, one of the leading African artists of today.  El Anatsui makes the most of recycled materials by transforming abandoned milk tins and metal bottle caps into beautiful tapestries that look like traditional woven textiles.  In the galleries, we created our own multi-media textiles using various metals and materials.

Work by El Anatsui can currently be viewed in his retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum and new work was recently on view at the Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea.
