Picture This! Recycled Robots

Virtual Tour and Art Workshop


Sunday, January 10, 2021
10 – 11 am

Join us for a virtual family tour and art-making experience inspired by our popular Picture This! series now designed as an at-home opportunity for families.

Discover how artists change everyday materials into imaginative works of art! With the holiday of Tu B’Shevat (birthday of the trees) coming this month, think about ways to be more kind to the earth and reuse materials around you. See works in the Jewish Museum collection that include a playful mix of objects such as light bulbs, metal cans, stones, wood blocks, and more. Design a unique robot character out of materials you find or collect and transform these objects into something new. 

Free with RSVP.

RSVP for Zoom link, one ticket per family.

Zoom information will be sent with email confirmation.

found objects to reuse (milk carton, egg carton, small box, bottle, packaging)
