Marcus Garvey Park
The Studio Museum is looking for volunteers on Saturday, September 29, 2018 to assist in maintenance of Maren Hassinger: Monuments, an exhibition of eight site-specific sculptures installed for approximately one year in Marcus Garvey Park. The sculptures in Monuments are made of branches, wood chips, and natural materials that respond to aspects of the park's landscape.
Volunteers have played an essential role in the creation of these large-scale works and their continued participation is an important component to this project, which celebrates community. Prior art-making, gardening, or fabrication experience is helpful but not necessary! The volunteer shift will be followed by a pizza lunch with the exhibiting artist Maren Hassinger.
Join us afterwards for The Artist's Voice: Maren Hassinger with Lowery Stokes Sims at 2:00 pm at the NYPL Harlem Library!
