Calling All Artists!

Join us for the opening of ColorLab, BCM’s family art studio! We’re launching our new space with a hands-on open house and inviting families to explore the materials and ideas inspiring our programs. We’d love to hear about the art materials, artists, books, and dreams you have for our new space. Come create and share your thoughts with us!

Rotating programs will feature the work and material of African American, Afro-Caribbean, and African contemporary artists, including projects inspired by Chakaia Booker, Wangechi Mutu, and Jack Whitten. Learn about Afrofuturism through a toolbox containing books, materials, and prompts to guide creating. Each visit to ColorLab will offer new ways to experiment with art and new ideas to explore through collage and sculpture, as well as the exploration of the Museum’s collection using all of the senses. Hands-on programs will be supported by BCM’s teaching artists and educators.

Starting May 26, 2018, ColorLab will be open for public programs on Saturdays & Sundays 11-5pm, and Thursdays 2-5pm.

All programs are included with museum admission.

ColorLab is made possible by Peggi Einhorn and Michael Lasky and family; The Pierre & Tana Matisse Foundation; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum Board of Trustees.
