Behind-the-Scenes at the Museum: Puppets and Activism in New York City
Recommended for ages 7 and up.
Get creative and make your own puppet out of recycled materials as you discover how puppets have been used by activist movements in NYC. Participants in this virtual intergenerational program will enjoy a behind-the-scenes experience with the Museum’s curators Monxo López and Sarah Seidman, who will share examples from the Puppets of New York and Activist New York exhibitions.
This intergenerational program welcomes families to participate together.
How it Works
Sessions are live taught and interactive in a virtual setting that balances active engagement and privacy. Programs are presented as webinars. You will be able to send questions, comments, and observations via the chat feature to the educators, but participants will not use cameras or microphones and will not be visible on screen.
Student Artwork Submission
Participants are invited to submit photos of artwork created during or after a MCNY Kids Create virtual program to be considered for a student gallery of work on the Museum of the City of New York’s website. To send in a submission, please fill out the Student Artwork Permission Form and email a signed copy to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a digital image of the student’s artwork.
