Video of Interview Done by MoMA of Our Art Friends Group
Museum of Modern Art New York- Matisse: Beyond the Cutouts Studio
Left to Right: Teri, Pat, Benedicte, and Me all busy creating collages.
Late last year Associate Educators, Sarah Kennedy and Alison Burstein, at the Museum of Modern Art asked several of us if they could interview us about our participation in their programs. Pat, Benedicte, Teri, Judy, and I are regular participants in their art-related events - Print Studio, Matisse - Beyond the Cutouts Studio, and even the Toulouse-Lautrec twice monthly Café Society Drawing Sessions. Participation is free with Museum admission. Work done in those sessions frequently appeared in this blog over the months and years.
The 4 minute video just appeared on their blog and I finally decided that I would share it here. They would like their programs to be widely advertised and I hope that readers of my blog will share the information for MoMA.
Here is the link to the MoMA blog for the video:
Pat and Benedicte are two of my friends who were interviewed. Pat is the first person you see, with her sketchbook. Benedicte has the lovely French accent. And I'm the one in the red sweater. There is also a photo of us with Judy (left) and Teri (right) on a day when all 5 of us were in the Print Studio in 2012.
Having friends with whom I can share my interests, makes this piece of my retirement come alive.
It is hard to find information on the MoMA website that lists the events that are related to the exhibits - and there is a Warhol event that will be held after the Soup Can exhibit opens this month. My advice is to go to the exhibit listing, and follow the "events" links that are embedded after the description of the exhibit.
