Shared Resources for Spring 2020
We’re bringing art from our home to yours. We have rounded up some of our favorite drawing, collage, audio, and movement activities inspired by artworks in MoMA’s collection. We hope these art-making prompts can provide a spark of creativity while we continue to “museum from home.”
You asked, we answered! Starting next week, we’re bringing our galleries to you with Virtual Views. Get ready for exclusive access to Donald Judd’s revolutionary sculptures, Dorothea Lange’s impactful photographs, intimate home movies, and more. Every weekend, we’ll take you inside an exhibition or a favorite from the collection through video stories and curator Q&As, as well as audio playlists and feature articles.
And our shout-out this week goes to the Brooklyn Public Library, which is offering free virtual activities every day, like book clubs, games, and craft circles.
Lincoln Center Pop-Up Classroom
Schools may be closed but Lincoln Center Pop-Up Classroom is open. Tune in to @LincolnCenterNYC on Facebook Live every weekday at 10:00 a.m. ET for your daily dose of creativity. Led by some of world's best artists and educators, each creative learning activity utilizes simple materials found at home to help families with children explore a variety of art forms.
For family audiences, we’re teaming up with a remarkable group of artists who will bring world-class performances and diverse musical perspectives straight from their homes to yours. We're excited to share these short performances recorded by the artists themselves with your family at home. Look out for new events coming up!
