When All Else Fails Part 2
: Screen Printing with Julie Chang
12–3 PM, Education Studios

 What happens when things change and the old standbys no longer work? What does it mean to let go and invest in risk for reinvention? Artist Julie Chang posed these questions in 2013 when invited to participate in the museum’s Artists Drawing Club program. Three years later, she revisits these questions, inviting visitors to help her shed previous narratives and use the museum as a place to reconnect and reimagine the creative process.
