    • Chinati Foundation artist-in-residence Sahra Motalebi invites viewers on a visit to Marfa, Texas, where she reflects on what it means to create work away from her home base of New York state. The artist, composer, vocalist, and writer provides perspectives on how our notions of expression are being updated at this time while sharing the surrounding natural desert landscape with us. Motalebi also introduces Resonators, her current project that addresses the intersections of experience, materiality, and sound.

    • Turn all those delivery boxes into your own imagined museum! Using the boxes and paper, we will create a space to install and display your favorite art pieces found in magazines, draw or color the walls with your own artwork, or make sculptures out of toys like Legos!
