Arte! Arte! Arte!: Soft Sculpture Workshop

A Program for Educators


Thursday, March 14, 2024
4 – 6:30 pm EDT
Scheuer Auditorium

Join us for a workshop that explores Marta Minujín: Arte! Arte! Arte! The exhibition focuses on the work of Marta Minujín, a defining force of Latin American art whose trajectory intersected with the major artistic developments of the postwar period while reflecting a singular spirit and vision infused by her sharp intellect, irreverent humor, and performative presence. In the early 1960s, Minujin started to experiment with mattresses, creating colorful soft sculptures that would come to define her signature style. Participate in a tour of this exhibition and a hands-on workshop with a Jewish Museum teaching artist. Educators will create a soft sculpture inspired by works in the exhibition.

Light refreshments will be served.

Program fee: $18. Materials included. 

A limited number of spaces are available for teachers of self-contained special education classes and special education teachers in ICT classes to register free of charge by emailing

Registration deadline March 13.

New York State teachers may receive 2.5 CTLE hours.
