Recently, I facilitated a workshop with the museum’s Expanding the Walls Youth Program. Totally fun! Thank you to all the students who participated. Gerald Leavell and I had a few conversations prior the workshop about what that afternoon could look like. After continued discussion about themes, we decided on “building creative communities” as the idea that would inform our activity. We presented the group with a variety of underground artists produced zines and videos from my collection. The discussion that followed focused on the power of such objects to voice the spirit of a creative community. Then, we made a zine!
