Upcoming Event: 4th Annual Free Arts Day Inspired by Animal Farm

On October 1, 2017, The Brant Foundation will host 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. 

About Free Arts Days:

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.

Please contact Sabrina Marsalisi at sabrina.marsalisi@brantfoundation.org for more information on volunteering at Free Arts Day.

The Brant Foundation Library

The Brant Foundation’s library program was established in 2009 to facilitate the appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and to advance our mission of promoting arts education. As both a museum and study center, the Foundation’s library serves as a crucial resource for students, scholars, and educators by providing access to a unique collection of hard-to-find materials.

Visit our Library Program page for more information and to browse our recent September selections.
