Check out these family-friendly activities this Sunday at the Studio Museum. Sundays at the Studio Museum are always free, thanks to Target.

1–6pm: Artists-in-Residence Open Studios: Steffani Jemison, Jennifer Packer, and Cullen Washington Jr.

Please join us to see work in progress by our current artists in residence Steffani Jemison, Jennifer Packer and Cullen Washington Jr.

Since 1968, the Studio Museum has earned recognition for its catalytic role in advancing the work of visual artists of African and Latino descent through its Artist-in-Residence program. The program has supported over one hundred graduates who have gone on to highly regarded careers.

1pm: Gallery Tour: Ayé A. Aton: Space-Time Continuum and Mendi + Keith Obadike: American Cypher


Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of Ayé A. Aton: Space-Time Continuum and Mendi + Keith Obadike: American Cypher with a knowledgeable museum educator.

Ayé A. Aton: Space-Time Continuum presents a collection of over 200 slides, documenting Ayé A. Aton (b. 1940) murals, painted between 1963 and 1976 through image and sound, providing an intimate glimpse into the domestic lives of an African-American community on the cusp of cultural transformation.

Mendi + Keith Obadike: American Cypher is a site-specific suite of projects that respond to American stories about race and DNA by the intermedia artists Mendi and Keith Obadike (both b. 1973).

The tour will have something for everyone: adults, families and kids of all ages are welcome!

2pm: Hands On: Futuristic Assemblages

Learn more about the work of artist and musician Ayé A. Aton, a pioneer of the Afrofuturism movement. In this workshop, space is the place and we will make futuristic collages inspired by Aton's work!
