Pop-Up Talks: Art, Literacy, and Our Changing Communities

Schapiro Wing and American Art Galleries, 5th Floor

Listen in as adult ESOL students share reflections on art and change in their communities, presenting their own artworks inspired by those on view in the Museum. This special gallery experience showcases the creativity of students enrolled in the CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP) at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC).

In the weeks leading up to this event, the participants discussed works in our collections and exhibitions, including Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami) and 200 Years of Learning and Creativity with American Art, and responded by creating their own pieces.

The Brooklyn Museum’s art-making partnerships for adult literacy students at the Brooklyn Museum grew out of a 2021 collaboration with ESOL teacher Caryn T. Davis. Art supplies for this project were provided by Materials for the Arts. Books were donated by Austin Book Shop.

Free with Museum admission.
