    2:15PM - 4:45PM The Fabric Workshop and Museum Tour & Workshop
    Transportation will not be provided. Additional fee applies.

    Spark your senses with a visit to Philadelphia’s historic (and iconic) Reading Terminal Market, then head over to The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM), an internationally acclaimed contemporary art museum. FWM has collaborated with some of the most innovative and renowned artists of the past four decades to stretch their practices by creating work in fiber, new materials and new media. During your visit you will tour Poorly Watched Girls, a solo exhibition by Artist-in-Residence Suzanne Bocanegra. In her collaboration with FWM, Bocanegra draws on such disparate sources of inspiration as an opera set in a convent during the French Revolution; an 18th-century ballet based on a painting of a weeping woman; and Judy Garland's wardrobe test for the cult film, Valley of the Dolls. You will also visit FWM’s professional studios and hear about the research, construction and fabrication that occur there. To top it off, you’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at screen printing to create your own custom tote bag inspired by the exhibition!

    Included in registration.
    Moore College of Art & Design, Auditorium

    Moderator: Gerald Clarke
    Panelists: C Maxx Stevens, Gina Adams, Da-kaxeen Mehner

    A monument is typically presented as a three-dimensional structure explicitly created to commemorate a person or event, which is viewed as relevant to a social group as a part of their remembrance of historic times or cultural heritage. Throughout the Twentieth Century and to the present, monuments in America have represented a limited cultural scope that has lacked multi-ethnic perspectives. In this panel, Native American sculptors will present their work and speak to how their work re-imagines the concept of “monument”, not as commemorative propaganda but as expressions of personal or tribal connection to family, history and/or tribal nation.
