MOST RECENT

Here is one last picture and memory from the Friday, May 18, 2018: BTMF Academy, John F. Kennedy High School field trip to the Museum of Art and Design. The background vinyl wall mural is an art installation by Samantha Bittman: Interlace.

I want to thank everyone involved in making this trip possible: Parents, Students, Administrators and Teacher Chaperones: Mr. Hernandez and Ms. Cooney. I also want to thank Duneska Michel, the Education Coordinator at the Museum of Art and Design and Ms. Gutierrez, the JFK School Nurse for patiently looking through each and every student file as is the requirement of every field trip on short notice to make this trip happen.

There is so much more to learn about the process and craft of creation in Tanya Aguiniga's exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design called Craft & Care.

We learned that Tanya created the hanging fabric scultural installations by asking the actual migrants that were crossing the border of Mexico to the United States to tie a knot to the continuous fabric ropes. So, each knot represented a traveller crossing the border. Tanya's exhibition will be up until October 2, 2018, so visitors will have a bit more time to see her exhibition. Derrick's exhibition ends August 2, 2018. And La Frontera: Encounters Along the Border runs until September 23, 2018.

All 3 concurrent exhibitions are so worth seeing in one visit as they all somehow relate to each other. We didn't get a chance to view Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Shapiro, so hopefully when I get the family passes for the students, they can go back and take their time and experience Contemporary Art with their families.

Students might have not realized that on the entry level wall where the elevators were, was also an art installation by Samantha Bittman called 'Interlace'. This large scale vinyl mural was created to coincide with the 'Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Shapiro's group exhibition.

Many of my other art students weren't able to make this field trip to the Museum of Art and Design for a variety of reasons, so I want to try to post as many pictures as I can for those who were unable to make this field trip...although, I think nothing compares to seeing artwork in person as opposed to online or through photos.

We learned the significance of all the different hats on wheels. When I heard the story, it made me sad as I'm sure it made all my students sad...to learn that in the Jim Crow era, African-American travellers had to put on a hat as a disguise to pretend that they were Chaffeurs, even though they were the actual owners of their own cars to avoid hostile or aggressive reactions and confrontations.

This a collage on wood panel piece by Derrick Adams @derrickadamsny, in his solo exhibition and art installation, titled 'Sanctuary' at the Museum of Art and Design.

Duneska, our Museum Guide and Eductional Workshop Instructor had students explore collage techniques in our MAD Lab Workshop, much in the way Derrick tapped into the history of collage, although Derrick made his art with particular purpose, placement and meaning. Derrick's collage had intricate layer of symbolism, which Duneska touched on.

For the student workshop, as it was only a 45 minute lab project, students worked intuitively. Many students told me they didn't know what they were trying to do. Sometimes to work intuitively can lead an Artist to developing their artwork at a later point with more purpose and meaning.
I strongly believe intuitive approaches of artmaking that the Surrealist Artists used are just as important approaches to creating and creativity.

I love these collage projects that are ready to hang and be displayed. I posted a previous larger picture with the Student Artists holding their art bags.

Here are pictures with some more works in process. I love this idea of using a brown craft paper bag with a handle to create an art collage on because you have an instant work of art that doesn't need to be framed or wired to display.
I am going to borrow this idea for a later student art project.

I had no idea until I got a post feed from RISD, my alma mater today with this exact art installation, that Tanya Aguiniga @tanyaaguiniga is a Rhode Island School of Design Alumni and received her MFA in Furniture Design. I got my BFA in Painting from RISD.

I looked at Tanya's website and was thoroughly impressed with not only her artworks, but the fact that she is also a 'Maker' and has a link to a 'shop' site where you can buy her beautiful handmade jewelry or handmade rope baskets for your home.

This is definitely a contemporary trend that I am loving, where Artists are making and selling their artworks directly and at very affordable prices. Now, everyone can be an art collector, without having to feel the need to confer with a Gallery or Art Consultant to help build your art collection.

The Museum of Art and Design might be the only NYC art museum that has a workshop lab that field trip students can make a hands on project to take with them after a scheduled guided and private tour.

I am not a believer in taking students on any kind of educational museum field trip without a private and guided tour. I have never personally organized a field trip and just paid for their entrance tickets to allow them to wander on their own. I sincerely hope that my art students got something out of the guided tour and workshop lab project. I am going to try to secure family passes for all 28 of the art students who went on this Friday, May 18 field trip, so that they can take their families and spend more leisurely time looking at all the exhibits that unfortunately we didn't have time to look at with the timeline we were on to get to the bus and cross the GW Bridge to get back to Paterson by 2:30pm.

I got a bit carried away taking pictures. I was supposed to be paying attention to the tour and noticed some beautiful hairstyles. Can you tell I have a thing for hairstyles? @soravyn_pastor @duneskasuannette

This is what happens when you pose for pictures in NYC on public streets and your art teacher stands behind the picture taker and hijacks those poses with her camera. Sorry, girls...this picture of friends posing together on a field trip to the Museum of Art and Design was too good to not steal a picture of to post on @therealmslym.

This is a facsimile copy of 'The Green Book' that Derrick Adams based his solo exhibition @madmuseum called "Sanctuary". Thank you @derrickadamsny for re-introducing us to this book through your solo exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design which was curated by @dexterwimberly. The exhibition runs until August 12, 2018. I highly recommend everyone to make time to go see this important exhibition along with all the other ongoing exhibitions at the Museum of Art and Design, which always puts on very thought provoking, challenging and eye-opening exhibitions by Contemporary Artists living and working around the modern world we all call home.

I loved Raquel Bessudo's fiberwork from 2013 titled, 'La Bestia" from the exhibition, La Frontera: Encounters Along the Border @madmuseum. I hope to try some fiberart projects with students sometime soon.

I couldn't resist making a slide show of memories from our recent field trip to the Museum of Art and Design. I am so glad that @tanyaaguiniga Tanya Aguiniga: Craft & Care's exhibition wall text came in 2 versions, as many of my art students are bi-lingual Spanish and English speakers.

Ravyn John @soravyn_pastor was my art student when she was in the 9th grade in 2015 and wasn't able to take the field trip I arranged that year to the Studio Museum of Harlem. I was so sad Ravyn couldn't attend that particular field trip to see some of the exhibitions there, as I had my own personal artwork up in an exhibition called 'Salon Style'. Ravyn couldn't attend because she was scheduled for a required school wide test that particular day or I would have pulled whatever possible strings I could to get her to go.

Check out Ravyn's very elegant and 'on fire' hairstyle direct from her Prom 2 days prior. Ravyn was one of only 2 Seniors to attend this field trip to the Museum of Art and Design, as many 12th graders had taken the day off to go to the shore, as is the tradition with 12th graders.

I tried to recruit some of my current and former 12th grade art students to go on this Museum of Art and Design field trip and they all were somewhat dismissive, LOL..like "Why would I go on a Field Trip?! I'm an important Senior with important plans!". Ravyn actually came to me to ask me if I was planning any art field trips this year and I told her in all seriousness that I would reserve half the bus just for her if needed.

Ravyn, throughout the years ALWAYS greeted me in the hallways. Some other former art students would on occasion say hello or stop saying anything all together as the years would progress. I still remember Ravyn like it was yesterday. I can't believe she will be graduating soon. Ravyn has not changed to me at all, as she will always be remembered for her sweet laugh and kindness. I am so happy that Ravyn finally got to go on one of my art field trips as she is definitely one of my most favorite 12th graders, even if she is not my current art student. This field trip was memorable for me also because we got to make a field trip finally happen with Ravyn John 💖 🌈 !!!

Students participated in a hands-on workshop @madmuseum after the guided tour. The workshop addressed some of the exhibitions we viewed during our field trip to NYC.

Students listened to the Duneska, our Educational Guide as part of our Museum of Art and Design field trip. I took a picture of this beautiful artwork by Kerianne Quick. Kerianne's artwork was part of the 'La Frontera: Encounters Along the Border' group exhibition @madmuseum. This exhibition touches on some of the current political discourse of border control and immigration policies.

Mr. Hernandez @edsbookshelf was a great sport and posed for this picture under Tanya Aguiniga's sculpture, which is part of the exhibition called: Craft & Care @madmuseum. Mr. Hernandez teaches Business classes at BTMF, but he is also our resident Graphic Designer.

Tanya's exhibition was an excellent example of how an Artist uses 'Crafts' to generate dialogue on critical contemporary social and political issues.

Duneska, our tour guide is explaining what "The Green Book" is, in reference to Derrick Adams' @derrickadamsny solo exhibition @madmuseum: Sanctuary. Not only are we learning about the artmaking process, but also learning about the history of Segregation and social injustice in the United States. Contemporary Artists have to be well versed in all subjects in order to create their artworks. Making Art is not just about making. Artist have to do a lot of research, build knowledge and spend a lot of time figuring out how to integrate ideas into a visual medium.

Shajir, Natajiana, Denim and Jefferson were all so gracious in allowing me to take their pictures while we were waiting for our guided tour and workshop @madmuseum in NYC. We are all so excited to be here!

The vinyl wall mural they are standing behind is actually a temporary wall mural installation by Samantha Bittman, titled 'Interlace'. #museumofartanddesign
