Have you ever seen a sculpture or mural in a public place 🏞 and wondered who made it, or why it’s there? Amazing public art is everywhere around us, in subways 🚆, airports ✈️, parks ⛲️, and more! For this MOCACREATE, we’ll learn about some public art pieces by AAPI artists and by New York City public school students, too! Then, let’s brainstorm what we would make if we could add art to the places around us. 🤔 Tiny sculptures on the sidewalk? 🧸 Stained glass in the subway? 🌺 Maybe a painted ceiling in a hospital? There are so many possibilities for public art 🎨!


At MOCACREATE, we love to learn about different creative people and the awesome artwork they come up with. Today, let’s learn about artist and architect Maya Lin! Join Educator Taylor and her amazing assistant Roux to learn more about Maya and her work. Then, we’ll think about how we can use the world around us to create earthworks, a special kind of art, just like Maya!
