4th Annual Free Arts Day at The Brant Foundation
Inspired by Animal Farm Artists
Katherine Bernhardt, Sadie Laska, and Agathe Snow
On October 1, 2017, The Brant Foundation hosted its fourth annual Free Arts Day, in collaboration with Free Arts NYC. One hundred children from New York City’s Department of Homeless Services will hear directly from artists, Katherine Bernhardt, Sadie Laska, and Agathe Snow, and create their own projects inspired by works in the current exhibition Animal Farm.
The Brant Foundation is honored to continue its ongoing partnership with Free Arts NYC – an organization that shares their same belief in the power of the arts to affect positive change. Previous editions of The Brant Foundation Free Arts Day included Jonathan Horowitz in 2016, Rob Pruitt in 2015, and Dan Colen in 2014.
Free Arts Days are a unique volunteer opportunity that pairs underserved elementary-aged youth 1 on 1 with volunteers for an afternoon of “mini-mentoring.” While working together to create art projects based on the day’s theme, participants are able to create meaningful connections with someone they might not otherwise meet.
At a Free Arts Day, our youth have the opportunity to develop their creativity and communication skills with a caring adult and to explore a variety of art materials and techniques.
