Knotted Works with Whitney Oldenburg
February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us to create knotted works of art with Whitney Oldenburg, MFTA’s Fall 2019 Artist-in-Residence. Oldenburg’s solo exhibition Loose Ends examines the desire to keep things tightly bound when they can so easily be unraveled. Many of the show’s artwork incorporates knots, strings, ropes, and tangles. In this class led by Oldenburg, we invite you to take a guided tour of Loose Ends and create works of your very own.
