Renee Cox, Chillin’ with Liberty (from Rajé), 1998, chromogenic print on paper, 22 5/8 x 17 5/8 x 1 1/8 inches, gift of a private collection, 2019.15.3.7

Join us for Tang at Home Studio on Saturday, October 9, at 11:00 am to talk about art, make art, and share — all conducted via Zoom.

This week, we will take a close look at Renée Cox’s Chillin’ with Liberty. We will discuss the work, what the Statue of liberty symbolizes, and what liberty means. Then we will create our own artwork that explores ideas of liberty, equality and inclusivity!

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 includes a guided exploration of an artwork, information about the artist, and a hands-on art project.

Tang at Home Studios are free, however, registration is required and space is limited. Register via Google form.

Once you register, you will receive project instructions, a list of materials, and a link to Sunday’s Zoom meeting. Register early, as space is limited. Registration will close once the workshop reaches capacity.
