    Staging the City with Cut-Outs

    Thursday, November 20, 1:00–5:00 p.m.

    The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, mezzanine

    Artist Sarah Crowner references Matisse’s work on set design by presenting a large-scale, boldly colored curtain. In a daylong, interactive workshop, participants are invited to consider their surroundings and make cut-outs that reflect the geometry of New York City’s rich urban setting. The curtain is brought to life as a dynamic backdrop that integrates the individual cut-outs into a single decorative composition, unveiled at the end of the workshop as participants parade their collective design through the space.

    Free; drop in to participate on a first-come, first-served basis.

    In conjunction with MoMA Studio: Beyond the Cut-Out
