Teen Create Lab: Lifelike

Saturday, Mar 09, 2013 - 1:00 PM-4:00 PM

The objects featured in the exhibition Lifelike force viewers to closely examine what is real, and what is an artful trick of the eye. MCASD invites high school students to explore realism in contemporary art and the magic of everyday objects during workshops led by local artists Brianna Rigg and Gary Garay.

Brianna Rigg’s practice uses objects to investigate histories, power relations, and psychological motivations that lead to the production of cultural artifacts. Gary Garay’s work explores commonplace objects that speak to the Mexican-American immigrant experience in Southern California.

Following the workshop, stay and explore Lifelike!

This event is free-of-cost to current high school students and space is limited. Send an e-mail to education@mcasd.org with subject line “Lifelike” that includes your name, high school, and grade by Wednesday, March 6, 2013.
