Join us Saturday, February 27, at 11:00 AM, for Tang at Home Studio: What a View! Photographer Danielle St. Laurent created a series of family portraits during the pandemic in which families are separated by windows. We will look at Laurent’s photographs from the exhibition Pandemic and Protest, and think about how we can find creative ways to connect with others. Take a walk in your neighborhood or look out your window and gather ideas about what windows can reveal and represent to you. What stories can you imagine from your window? From rainbows to positive messages like “Stronger Together,” we will make our own paper-based windows from which we can look out at the world, and others can look at us.  

Hosted by Sunny Ra, The Laurie M. Tisch Educator for K-12 and Community Programs, and her team of Skidmore student interns, these sessions are geared toward children ages 5 to 12 accompanied by a parent or guardian. This hour-long live session will focus on exploring and sharing our thoughts about the artwork, learning more about the artist and then making our own inspired work! 

Before Saturday’s live event, check out these high-definition images of the photographs.
