Join us for some creative family time on the Modern’s lawn as we look across the reflecting pond to focus on the Museum’s new acquisition, KAWS’s monumental sculpture CLEAN SLATE, 2018. Learn about how KAWS and other artists have reclaimed toys and cartoon characters and given them new purpose and identities. Take this opportunity to start the spring with your own clean slate! Empty out your kids’ closets and work together to recycle old stuffed animals into art. Stick around and take a selfie with the resulting collaborative sculpture built by all participating families!
This is a free drop-in program; the only requirement is that families bring stuffed animals to contribute to the collaborative project.
