Join us for a family workshop offered in conjunction with the exhibition “Chris Ofili: Night and Day,” the first American survey of work by the acclaimed British artist. From 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., travel to tropical Trinidad to explore colorful natural environments that have inspired the artist’s work. Participants will paint the colors of the night sky and observe the world with fresh eyes by creating their own kaleidoscopes.
