Get directions to the Clark
Celebrate Juneteenth at the Clark and check out contemporary artist David-Jeremiah’s exhibition I Drive Thee, in which the artist reflects on his experience of Black masculinity in America through large-format, semi-abstract sculptural reliefs. In these works, the artist explores the Lamborghini sports car and the Spanish bullfight as ways to think through questions of race—the first as a symbol of prestige and performance, the second as a spectacle of power and persecution. Drop in and make an artwork inspired by David-Jeremiah’s circular reliefs, or tondos, using collage-making techniques, and consider the symbols, colors, shapes, and materials that you might use to make an artwork that expresses something important to you. All ages and abilities welcomed.


Family programs are generously supported by Allen & Company.
