Contemporary artist, community activist, and educator Trisha Gupta is partnering with KID Museum to unveil her dynamic collage and woodblock prints. Beginning Sunday, January 8 until Sunday, May 21, visitors can view two of Gupta’s large-scale artworks, custom made for KID Museum, titled Home is Lost/Home is Found, where the artist explores themes of identity, home, and emigration.
“I believe art is a platform for social change. My work is heavily influenced by social inequality and by my Indian-American heritage. For me, this work was created from the historic processes that are a part of my tradition and help me communicate and understand who I am.” – Trisha Gupta
Visitors to KID Museum will be able to engage in hands-on maker experiences designed to complement the art on display, including an artist Meet and Greet with Ms. Gupta; an ongoing activity at KID’s Materials Bar called “Hardware Prints,” a modern riff on block printing techniques; and a special workshop led by the artist, where visitors will design and make their own printing block with a laser-cut twist.
