VIRTUAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Join us for our Virtual Educator Night! The Warehouse education staff will give an overview of the current exhibition Psychic Wounds: On Art & Trauma and introduce The Warehouse’s new website and virtual resources. Registrars will also be present to share behind-the-scenes stories (and photos from past installations) and answer questions like: How do you get a 9-foot ball of dirt to float to the ceiling? What happens when Marc Quinn’s head made of frozen human blood melts?

WHEN: Thursday, September 17, 2020, 5pm
WHERE: Zoom Meeting
