Description

Figurines have always been a powerful way to portray the emotional truth of life’s milestones. The clay figures featured in “In Transition: Female Figurines from the Michael C. and Mannetta Braunstein Collection” represent important stages in the life-cycles of the Pre-Columbian peoples. Their clothing and gestures may seem mysterious to us now, but the experiences that we see in them—youth, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, parenthood and family, and old age—are still relevant and deeply resonant. The Barrick Museum invites visitors to be inspired by the skill of these long-ago artists. Come and create your own figurines to express the “in transition” moments of your life. Clay will be provided by the museum.

ABOUT VISITOR-MADE: Visitor-Made occurs the third Thursday of every month, starting at 4 p.m. Look around the galleries, then participate in either a group or individual art-making project. Projects vary monthly and are free and open to the public.
