From May 17 to June 28, MFA fine arts alumna Ulrike Heydenreich will use The Classroom at PS 122 as a workspace and open studio. Heydenreich’s work displays her ongoing interest in travel, dislocation and cartography. Using both the whistling melodies of sea shanties and drawings of re-imagined sea maps, she continues to delve into the human desire to explore. The work in Drawing from the Sea is curated by Rachel Gugelberger, Associate Director of Visual Arts Museum and SVA Galleries.
The Classroom, located at 150 First Avenue, will be open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays between May 17 and June 28, from 12 – 6pm. On June 21, children ages 4 and 5 are invited to draw maps with the artist. On June 28 at 1pm, the public is welcome to join the artist and the curator for an informal studio visit and discussion.
