    • Julian Schnabel was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, and currently lives and works in New York and Montauk. The grand scales and gestures of his paintings established his renowned Neo-Expressionist style, and his full-length feature films have earned him Best Director prizes at the Cannes Film Festival and Golden Globes, among others. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Tate, London, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

    • If you could share your thoughts with the world, what would you say? In response to the exhibition, The Revolution Will Not Be Gray, students will explore the history of printmaking. Students will learn how to transform an idea of their passionate choice into printed artworks that can be shared and reproduced with friends, family, or community members.

    • Turn your ideas into moving actions! In this playful Workshop, students will develop a storyline with a setting and characters, draw a storyboard, and use a digital camera to animate their own film. After one week of production, a special screening will be held for family and friends in the Education Workshop. Students are asked to bring a digital camera or tablet.
