BCM’s Family Art Studio

ColorLab is BCM’s art-making space where artists of all ages can explore, make, and celebrate art. ColorLab programs are rooted in the creative works and cultures of Black artists. Each month our projects are inspired by a muse artist’s work and practice. Families have the opportunity to explore print-making, collage and sculpture projects inspired by artists such as Chakaia Booker, Romare Bearden, Faith Ringgold and Kehinde Wiley, among others.

Access to the ColorLab art studio is included in general admission.

August ColorLab Project

Join us in our ColorLab Art Studio during the month of August to create a body adornment inspired by the art and practice of Damali Abrams, also known as the “Glitter Priestess”, a New York-based artist of Guyanese origin. Tap into your inner sparkle to design a crown, sash or other adornment that puts your best summer self forward.

Programs in ColorLab are made possible with support from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, Peggi Einhorn and Michael Lasky, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the New York City Council.
