Event Details

Family Program Event:
Rock! Paper! Scissors!


Free to the Public
We're celebrating Sarah Sze's solo exhibition at The Fabric Workshop and Museum!  Children and adults alike will have the opportunity to explore Sarah Sze’s fantastical site-specific works. Taking inspiration from Sze’s work, families will work together to print silkscreen images, make rocks and pebbles, and try their hand at building an extraordinary sculpture from ordinary materials!  FWM Family Programs are designed for children ages 4-12 and their families to learn, enjoy, and immerse in contemporary art and museum experiences.
 
"...Sze creates exuberant installations that provide the viewer with a sense of wonder, visual pleasure, and a novel way to look at familiar space."
          -- MacArthur Foundation ("Meet the 2003 MacArthur Fellows," October 5, 2003)


FWM showcases new work by Artist-in-Residence Sarah Sze in her first solo exhibition in the Philadelphia area.  Sze’s immense and intricate site-specific works are akin to drawings in space, manipulating architectural spaces to alter the way they are experienced.  In 2013, Sze represented the United States in the 55th International Venice Biennale.
 
Funding for this exhibition is provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, National Endowment for the Arts, and the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the Board of Directors and Members of The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM).

The Fabric Workshop and Museum

The Fabric Workshop and Museum is an unique contemporary art museum and collaborative art studio with a visionary purpose: to stimulate experimentation among leading contemporary artists and to share the collaborative creative process with the public. Providing studio facilities, equipment, and expert technicians, FWM invites artists to experiment with fabric as well as a wide range of innovative materials and media. From its founding in 1977, FWM also serves as an education center for Philadelphia’s youth who, as printing apprentices, learn technical and vocational skills along with approaches to creative expression.

The FWM is distinguished as the only institution in the United States devoted to creating work in new materials and new media in collaboration with artists from diverse disciplines including sculpture, installation, video, performance, painting, ceramics, and architecture. Research, construction, and fabrication occur on-site in studios that are open to the public by appointment, providing visitors with the opportunity to see artwork from conception to completion. FWM seeks to bring this spirit of artistic investigation and discovery to the wider public and to local students in particular, to ensure and broaden their access to art, and to advance the role of art as a catalyst for innovation and social connection. FWM offers an unparalleled experience to artists, students, and the general public.
