Tang at Home Studio: Living Landforms 
The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, Zoom | 11 a.m.
We will gather on Zoom to discuss our ideas about the artwork, engage in an art-making activity, and share our creations.

Carpenter, who is also a gardener, explores the histories of African American farmers and her own family’s history of farming in her sculptures to honor their untold legacies. We will look at how Carpenter “breathes life” into her sculpture as a metaphor for the living earth, and then create our own 3-D topographical maps with recycled materials found around the house. To ensure a fun sharing environment, registration is required. The live Saturday sessions are best suited for kids ages 5-12 and their adult companions, but everyone is welcome!
