The Aerial Actor
7 – 9 PM
An evening of aerial acts with works by artists from Hong Kong and New York presented by Art Omi, Wave Farm and eteam.
The rise of drones has already been compared with the early days of the internet as the technology faces similar legal issues, confusion, and competing interests. Drones—or UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles)—have become ubiquitous, and their use has been restricted, expanded, aestheticized, embraced by agriculture and for art. But what is the effect of this new device? Through a range of works, The Aerial Actor probes the drone and its implications, and utilizes the devices as carriers of messages, and as actors in performances.
Participating artists include: Markley Boyer, Cheng Carmen, Doreen Chan, Kwong Man Chun, Sonia Cheung, eteam, Kim Fisher, Maximilian Goldfarb, Miles Goldfarb, Chung Mei King, Nicholas Knouf, Alon Koppel, Heidi Neilson, Echo Roe, Tom Roe, Chung Wing Shan, Coriander Shapiro, and Melissa Weaver.
This weekly drawing group offers time and space for individuals who wish to continue to hone their drawing skills in an independent environment. Participants work indoors in the light-filled Benenson Visitors Center and gallery or outdoors in the landscape of The Fields sculpture park.
FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH
Playgroup meets on September 5, October 3, November 7, December 5, January 2, February 6, March 6, April 3, and May 1.
Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in The Fields, Architecture, and the Visitors Center Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
