A view of Draftmen’s Congress at The New Museum, NYC
Instead of going to an art exhibit, become a part of the exhibit by contributing to Draftmen’s Congress , the creation of Polish artist Pawel Althamer, at the New Museum in NYC. The artist encourages visitors of all ages to paint, draw, color and collage using an array of markers, chalk, and acrylic paints.
The result is a bombastic display of color, expression, and social engagement that is incredible to behold. The supplies are regularly refilled throughout the day, as museum employees struggle to keep up with demand and use of materials, but it’s all in good fun.
What: Draftsmen’s Congress
When: Through April 13, 2014
