This Summer at the Katonah Museum of Art: Creativity Club, Family Day, Crafts, Social and More!

On View in the Galleries

July 9 - October 1, 2023

Wu Chi-Tsung: Synchronicity

Wu Chi-Tsung: Synchronicity, the innovative Taiwanese artist's first solo museum exhibition, will focus on Wu's recent Cyano-Collage Series, which seamlessly incorporates Eastern aesthetics with collage and photographic processes. A meditative video installation in the main galleries and an immersive installation in the project gallery will provide further examples of Wu's expansive practice.

The Bluest of Blues

Learn about and experiment with cyanotypes (a photographic printing process using paper and light) in the Pollack Family Learning Center this summer. Original art from the enchanting picture book The Bluest of Blues, written and illustrated by Fiona Robinson, will be on view along with hands-on activities related to cyanotypes, collage art, and nature-themed projects.
