Inside Art Opening Weekend
CMOM's new immersive and hands-on exhibition encourages visitors to connect with art, space and design like never before as they assemble, create, peek into, crawl under and walk through new large-scale installations and sculptures.
“Inside Art” featured interactive also include:
- A cylindrical sculpture by Adrienne Elise Tarver that encourages pint-sized visitors to crawl under and peek through a panorama of three-dimensional leaves
- A hanging imaginary beehive by Borinquen Gallo that asks kids to think about how they can better care for our environment
- A new mural by Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez that draws upon techniques in graffiti art and painting while incorporating elements of his identity as a Dominican-Puerto Rican, a New Yorker, a dad, an artist and an educator
- An enormous fallen tree stump made of fabric by Tamara Kostianovsky invites children to crawl beneath it and explore its textures, surfaces and its scale
- Joiri Minaya’s installation encourages children to break through, stretch through and jump through holes in her spandex wall of tropical patterns that challenge preconceived ideas of the Caribbean
- Leah Tinari’s over 30 illustrative portraits inspire visitors to remember the impact made by extraordinary U.S. women of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
In addition to engaging directly with the new artwork, visitors to Inside Art can also meet the museum’s resident artists, who have studios located in the gallery. Kids can create their own sculptures and installations in the Maker Space and family art studios with CMOM’s lead visual arts educators, and connect to place and their communities through pop-up performances in dance, theater and music performed in the gallery.
