Landscape Looking and Making with Jamel Robinson
Teaching Artist-in-Residence Jamel Robinson leads a program that links African American Art in the 20th Century and Landscape Art & Virtual Travel through the sensibility and practice of contemporary African American artists. Join Robinson for an interactive tour of the works on loan from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and for a conversation sparked by the comparison and contrast of two landscapes, one in each exhibition. Then, the artist will lead a workshop to create a drawn and painted landscape inspired by close looking and discussion. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute elements to a collaborative work-in-progress inspired by the theme of his exhibition Beauty from Ashes. Recommended for ages 13+.
