Purchase Tickets

Explore the metaphorical, mixed media art-making processes of Howardena Pindell in this self-guided activity with prompts shared in The Studio! Pindell’s practice, featured in 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone, constructs and deconstructs material surfaces through texture, shape, line, and color, to reflect on the intersections of homelessness, AIDS, war, genocide, sexism, xenophobia, and apartheid. All ages are welcome to participate, free with admission during Museum hours.
