Drawing on Love & Justice with Evelyn Rydz
A Call for Participation, A Call for Change
Join MAAM and MassArt Studio Foundation professor Evelyn Rydz for a free virtual community artmaking event that welcomes participants to sketch from observation and imagination. In a time marked by a pandemic and racial injustice, this session will reflect on how we use our creativity and artistic tools to bear witness to our world, to expose inequality, and to imagine a different future. Leading up to the US elections, this is a call for action — to make a commitment to draw on love and justice for positive change. Use any artmaking materials you have on hand. For inspiration and to share your drawings check out #drawingonloveandjustice on Instagram!

Natural Pigment Making Workshop with Jane Marsching
Join MAAM and MassArt Studio Foundation professor Jane Marsching to learn about where color originates in the world around us. Naturally sourced pigments are a sustainable alternative to toxic, polluting, and conflict labor produced pigments. For this workshop, we’ll forage for plants, rocks, earth, food to make pigments and mix with binders to create paints, inks, and dyes. You’ll also get an inside look at the new MassArt Natural Pigment Library of colors from around the world. All ages are welcome, no art experience necessary.

About the MassArt Art Museum
The MassArt Art Museum (MAAM) is Boston’s newest free contemporary art museum. After extensive renovations, MAAM opened in February 2020 in the space formerly known as the Bakalar & Paine Galleries at the heart of MassArt’s campus on the Avenue of the Arts. MAAM is a kunsthalle, or non-collecting museum, showing temporary exhibitions that feature the work of artists at all stages of their careers to bring fresh and varied perspectives to Boston. As MassArt’s teaching museum, MAAM is a resource for MassArt students and faculty, educating students about contemporary art, partnering with faculty to support the curriculum, and preparing students for careers in the museum field. As an extension of the College’s public mission, the Museum is also a vital resource to the community, offering a pathway to education in the arts and free, unique educational programming to Boston-area public schools and community groups.
