    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Gabriel Orozco was born in 1962 in Jalapa, Mexico, and currently lives and works between New York, Paris, and Mexico City. The artist is internationally renowned for concept-based work across various media, and his exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum explores the poetry of chance encounters while blurring the boundary between art and the everyday. Among numerous solo exhibitions, a recent retrospective of his work took place beginning at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and traveling to Kunstmuseum Basel, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Tate Modern, London. He is the recipient of the 2016 Aspen Award for Art.

      SOLD OUT: Flawless Sabrina

      In her lifetime, Flawless Sabrina has been an artist, a psychologist, an activist, and an icon of drag performance. Her apartment on East 73rd Street has become equally legendary as a transformative space and a hub, where she continues to practice the art of the tarot as passed down to her by her grandmother. In 2014, Sabrina performed over one hundred readings in conjunction with the Whitney Biennial. Giving fifteen-minute readings in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, Sabrina’s tarot practice is informed by her unique insight and experience between worlds.
