Dan Colen Inspired Free Arts Day at The Brant Foundation

MUSIC Life Scenery by La Cigale

There are no mistakes in art. That’s what attracted me to art many years ago. What I like to do is transform simple materials into an experience that people enjoy. My hope today is that…you’ll learn how to transform simple objects into memorable experiences and that maybe by the end of the afternoon, you’ll consider yourself artists, too.
