Designed for youth ages 5 years+ and families. FREE (space is limited; advanced registration required.)

In this Gallery Exploration Workshop we will tour the exhibition in the Wanda D. Ewing Gallery and convene in the Union’s Abundance Garden where we will explore nature’s beauty and ephemerality through the creation of cyanotype prints or “sun photography.”

Lydia Cheshewalla’s “Body Speaking to Body” is an immersive exhibition that invites viewers to examine their relationship to self and nature. Working with found objects and footage from the natural world, Cheshewalla brings these “ecological ambassadors” to gently reintroduce us to our environment. CLICK HERE to learn more about the exhibition.

Gallery Explorations provide opportunities to engage in themes and practices inspired by the work of current exhibiting artists.

Designed for youth ages 5yrs+ and their adult loved ones, these single engagement workshops use art-making to form connections with loved ones and the world around them.
