Face to Face

Add to Calendar 07-02-2013 09-06-2013 15 Face to Face For twenty-five years, The Children's Museum of the Arts has provided children of all backgrounds the creative tools needed to promote self-expression and esteem through visual and performing arts. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, CMA is proud to present Face to Face, an exhibit that offers a fascinating exploration of self-identity through still, moving, and living portraits, as portrayed by children using traditional methods of painting and drawing as well as technology. The main exhibit will consist of 40 portraits selected from CMA's Permanent Collection of children's art from over 50 countries, dating back to the 1930's. These pieces represent a range of historical moments, cultures and medium and will be hung salon style throughout the gallery. To incorporate CMA's philosophy of hands-on art-making, the exhibit will be accompanied by a variety of interactive installations that examine the texture, shape and sound of portraits. CMA will set up hands-on stations that will encourage visitors to become part of the exhibit, including reimagined versions of a typical self-portrait station. The CMA Media Lab will also create a photo booth in which visitors can take photos that will be projected on the wall. These photos will stream into a montage that will be accessioned into the collection and will also serve as a fascinating time-lapse of the exhibit as a whole. Face to Face also offers aspiring young artists the opportunity to submit their own works for a chance to become part of the museum's Permanent Collection. CMA will accept 25 original original works, in honor of 25 years of operation, to be selected by the museum's curatorial team. One selected piece will be chosen by an online viewer's choice campaign, hosted through CMA's website and social media platforms. To explore dimension, the exhibition will include a large-scale Pin Impression Board, offering several panels for visitors to experiment with and view their face as artwork. CMA will also present their first ever Artist-At-Work station in the Fine Arts Studio. Here, guest artists will volunteer their time and allow visitors to observe them in action as they create original portraits. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=127581 Children's Museum of the Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
