Artist Talks: Reimagining The Power of Art + Play
Hear directly from the Museum’s commissioned artists in our new live Artist Talk series! Learn about the upcoming installations and programs being planned for this year (2021 reopening date TBD) and get to know the artists behind the art. This year’s theme is Reimagining the Power of Art + Play, exploring topics on play, art, healing, community, identity and the Museum’s role in a post-COVID-19 world. Each Artist Talk will focus on different ways the Museum will be reimagining its spaces and programs for when it reopens and what visitors can look forward to!
Next Artist Talk
Reimagining Gathering with Wes Bruce
May 12, 2021 at 6pm PST
In 2016, Wes Bruce and the Museum created The Wonder Sound, an installation exploring joy, sorrow and the stories we tell about both. This spring, Bruce returns to create a new healing space for our community. Bruce and Director of Exhibitions Megan Dickerson will discuss this extension, how to gather in times like this and how to respond to a changing world.
Wes Bruce is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist who uses immersive spaces to tell stories of love, loss and what it means to be human. Visit the artist’s website.
Registration Coming Soon
The Artist Talk Series is presented by the Rain House Circle, passionate advocates and dedicated donors committed to The New Children’s Museum’s practice of commissioning contemporary artists to inspire art and play for a better world.
