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 Sculpture & Architecture Park and Newmark 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.

Unsilent Night

Saturday, Dec 21
5:30 PM
Benenson Center

Art Omi presents Phil Kline's Unsilent Night, a participatory electronic soundscape celebrated worldwide every December since 1992. This landmark work of avant-garde public art takes place in more than 130 cities across the United States, Canada, Europe and New Zealand, activating city streets, parks, and landscapes with “a shimmering sound-wall of bells and chimes that is dreamlike to wander through in the December nip” (The Village Voice). Led by composer Phil Kline, participants will gather at Art Omi's Benenson Center, and then proceed on a route through the park. Participants are encouraged to bring a mobile phone/media player with external speakers (pre-loaded with the Unsilent Night app or one of the four audio tracks—see unsilentnight.com/participate), or boombox with functioning tape deck. A selection of Kline's own boomboxes will be available to borrow on a first-come first-served basis. Participants should also bring illumination devices, such as headlamps and flashlights, and wear footwear appropriate for un-paved winter conditions.
