Seniors Social: Inspired by Keith Haring

Tuesday, October 10, 1 pm
Zoom

Make new artistic connections and spark conversations! Join us for our Seniors Social program, a monthly workshop series for older adults that combines conversations with art and artmaking. The AGO believes providing opportunities to experience art and artmaking increases well-being.  

Keith Haring was a prolific pop artist who rose to fame in New York City in the 1980s. Initially drawing cartoon-like figures in subways, his work beguiled and entranced the public and within a few years he was combining art and activism in widespread and innovative ways.   

In our artmaking session, we'll create several "glyph"-like figures depicting the human body in motion and we'll invite you to reflect on the activities of your day-to-day life. If you could create a small piece of guerrilla or graffiti art that symbolizes a practice or value you care deeply about, what would it be? 

The exhibition Keith Haring: Art Is for Everybody is organized by The Broad, Los Angeles.
