Albright-Knox Art Gallery / Buffalo Museum of Science
Join us for a day of discussion, curriculum connections, and activities inspired by the special exhibition Anthony McCall: Dark Rooms, Solid Light. Anthony McCall’s work transcends the familiar boundaries between sculpture, cinema, and drawing to create unforgettable interactive experiences.
Begin at the Albright-Knox to tour this exciting exhibition with School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz and discover how to use these artworks as a catalyst for student-centered learning. After exploring curriculum connections, you will participate in a hands-on art activity to support lesson plan development inspired by McCall’s light installations.
Lunch will be provided at the Albright-Knox. (Once you register, you will be contacted about your food preferences and any allergies.)
Then, travel to the Buffalo Museum of Science to tour the science studios with members of the Learning & Interpretation team. You will discuss connections between McCall's works and STEM learning opportunities in the galleries and through workshop activities.
When the workshop is complete, you are free to explore the rest of the Buffalo Museum of Science until it closes at 4 pm.
