Join Mana Contemporary Jersey City on Saturday, April 24th from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. for a day of socially-distanced public programs to mark the opening of Implied Scale: Confronting the Enormity of Climate Change with activities to expand the connection to art, climate change and the environment.
Throughout the day, guests will enjoy the following activities:
* Visit the Implied Scale exhibition and engage with large-scale, site-specific works, immersive installations, and powerful films from five artists Catherine Chalmers, Zaria Forman, Jeff Frost, Ted Kim, and James Prosek.
*Natural Dyes workshop with artist Kristianne Molina where guests may decorate reusable cloth bags and clothes while learning about natural dyes made from foraged, natural materials and food scraps and engaging with the Jersey City Office of Sustainability’s aim to rethink food waste and reduce the use of plastic bags. Guests are welcome to bring their own reusable bags and clothes to dye. Mana Contemporary totes will also be available for purchase.
*Birds of Prey Program with Flat Rock Brook where visitors will draw inspiration from the animals depicted in James Prosek’s mural included in the Implied Scale exhibition, and join Flat Rock Brook experts for a rare opportunity to view and learn about a great horned owl, Eastern screech owl, red-tailed hawk, and American kestrel. This program is presented in partnership with the Canco Park Conservancy.
