Open Studio From Home: Jay DeFeo, 22 May | Online Event | Open Studio From Home: Jay DeFeo
Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.

Jay DeFeo began The Rose in 1958 with only an idea of something “that had a center to it.” She would apply thick paint, let it dry, then chisel away at it, and then apply more paint. She built up the painting layer by layer, burying earlier versions until it was eleven inches thick! DeFeo called the artwork “a marriage between painting and sculpture.” She worked on The Rose for eight years in her apartment in San Francisco until she was evicted and forced to stop. The final work is nearly eleven feet tall and weighs almost a ton! In order to move it out of her apartment, DeFeo had to saw away part of the window and lower The Rose to the ground with a forklift.

Together we will explore the fascinating story behind The Rose. Then, we will create our own collages with hidden secrets!
