Everything is Beautiful: Art-Making with Recycled Materials
January 30, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Gen-erate student Maya Gollihugh of Capital High School presents a free, drop-in art-making workshop with recycled materials for the opening weekend of the Young Curators’ exhibition, Everything is Beautiful. Open to participants 10 years old and up.
Maya Gollihugh (Capital High School) takes inspiration from the Young Curators exhibition Everything is Beautiful for her public program. In this free workshop, participants will be engaged in a hands-on art-making activity using only recycled materials. Gollihugh explains “I am interested in recycled art for this program because people have become disconnected from each other. I feel that art can bring people together in a deeply profound way and making recycled art can impact the way we as a society create.”
Increasing out-of-school opportunities for teens, Gen-erate engages Santa Fe youth in the process of curating public programs at SITE Santa Fe. Teens participate in Gen-erate plan, design, and execute public programs at SITE Santa Fe that focus on topical issues of local importance and generate constructive, intergenerational dialogue through the exploration of contemporary art. Under the mentorship of public programs staff, Gen-erate teens build significant connections to local communities and gain an introduction to career pathways in the arts.
