Artist Lecture:

Students from BMoA’s ArtWorks Program, BMoA Exhibiting Artists
10:30AM - 11:30AM

ArtWorks is a program for select high school students who have a passion for the visual arts. Students have the opportunity to work alongside Museum staff, engage in discussions with guest speakers, attend a group field trip, and have their work displayed at BMoA. Join us for a discussion with current students involved in this year’s program, and their exhibition Wake Up, on display during the BMoA Summer 2019 Exhibition.

Art Project:

10:30 AM - 4:00 PM

This month’s project encourages participants to explore the theme: Wake Up, through sequential art as storytelling. Taking the same inspiration as the ArtWorks Students, think about what it means to ‘wake up’ either literally or metaphorically and how to communicate that visually.
