Free Open House for Educators and Curator-led Tour of FOLD

Thu, Oct 26, 2017 @ 4:30pm - 6:00pm

Free to all NYC educators. Please reserve your place here.

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese immigrants that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA’s collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Join curators Herb Tam and Andrew Rebatta for a tour of the exhibition, and chat with MOCA education staff about school programs at the museum and in your classroom.
