Join us for “Denim Demolition” Studio Sunday! The program will begin in the galleries with a lively reading of Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea by Tony Johnston to get the scoop on the history of jeans. Following the reading, get inspired by the fashions of the 1960s and ’70s while exploring the exhibition Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture, then draw on this inspiration to distress, paint, bead, rip, or embroider denim. MAD will have a limited supply of denim and recommends participants bring their own denim to work with.

MAD's Studio Sundays are hands-on workshops for the entire family and focus on the physicality of “making” and the sensual and tactile qualities of materials. Participants of the workshops take an in-depth look at different materials—from fiber, to clay, paper and every day products—as an art medium and explore how to incorporate them into sculptural art works.
Using Columbus Circle and the art work in the museum as the starting point to tell a story, each person proposes and creates an object that conveys personal narrative content and style.
