Time: 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Teacher: Staff Educator

The artists in the exhibition Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture moved away from the conventions of traditional art making. Experimenting with new materials, innovators such as Barbara Hepworth, Donald Judd and Robert Irwin created sculptures that engaged the space around them. Use colored noodles and pipe cleaners to create your own original abstract masterpiece.
