Members’ Tour | The Woodmere Annual: 80th Juried Exhibition
August 25
Join Woodmere’s associate curator, Rachel Hruszkewycz, for a tour of The Woodmere Annual: 80th Juried Exhibition. Jurors Michelle Angela Ortiz and José Ortiz-Pagán invited artists to submit works of visual art that reflect the theme of migration. Thirty-five artists working in sculpture, video, painting, photography, and collage address topics such as the Great Migration, the experience of Congolese immigrants in Philadelphia, the degradation of the natural world, and the migration of the Arctic tern, whose annual route is longer than that of any other bird. The spectrum of ideas and processes illustrates the intellectual rigor and creative diversity that characterize our city’s art community.
Refreshments will be served after the tour. To register, please email Erin Lawrence at elawrence@woodmereartmuseum.org.
6:00 – 7:30 pm | Members only

Learn & Create: Exploring the Dimensions of Sculpture
Tuesday-Friday, August 9-12
10 am – 1 pm | Ages 10-14
Register for this special class and explore the world of three-dimensional art. Inspired by the art of Dina Wind, students will create free-standing and relief sculptures as well as necklace pendants and paperweights by transforming materials such as paper, tin, cardboard, trinkets, and found objects. Demonstrations and creative experimentation will encourage students to discover the effects of light and shadow and how the placement of forms and spaces transform art in unexpected ways.
To register, please contact Amanda Monroe: amonroe@woodmereartmuseum.org
